DESIGNING COLLABORATIONS: Webinar – Using the CFI Collaborative Change Cycle to design your collaboration

Are you in a collaboration that is going nowhere? Did you start well and then get stuck? Are you looking to understand what to do next? Then this webinar is for you.

Collaboration for Impact have integrated the core disciplines and skills required to collaborate for systems change and presented them in a phased approach called the Collaborative Change Cycle. The Cycle is both a descriptive guide and a planning tool that identifies the clear milestones for working collaboratively with complexity.

Working in complexity often feels overwhelming and with no markers to know whether you are on track.  Whilst not a linear process, the Collaborative Change Cycle provides guidance on what phases and stage your collaboration is at.  Each phase and stage outlines the work required to make progress in four domains:

  • Leadership practice
  • Collaborative design
  • Community engagement
  • Data and measurement


This webinar is 1.5 hours in duration and will cover:

  • How the Collaborative Change Cycle was developed and the disciplines it blends (10 minutes)
  • A deep dive explanation and exploration of the Collaborative Change Cycle supported by case studies (50 minutes)
  • interactive Q&A with webinar participants (30 minutes)


You should attend this webinar if you are:

  • Involved in, leading or thinking about initiating a collaborative response to a complex challenge
  • Developing policy to better respond to complex challenges
  • Funding collaborative change processes
  • You play a role enabling collaborations to develop their thinking and practice
