I'm teaching a seminar all day today in Chicago so I will be making today's entry a brief one. Before I head out the door, I'd like to introduce you to a document that can be incredibly useful in mapping out collaboration strategies. Many of you, particularly in the advocacy community are already familiar with Collaboration Math, from the Prevention Institute.

I am dashing off to the airport to catch a flight to Philadelphia, so I have only a moment for a quick post. But I wanted to point yor attention to this great piece on having difficult conversations. It makes me think about the kinds of conflict that sometimes flair up when we work collaboratively as part of a SART or MDT.

Fieldstone Alliance just released their latest (and last) chart in a recent series on cushioning yourself against the economic downturn. They describe the chart as a review of engagement strategies, but in simpler terms, its a look at how programs can work with their communities, the agencies within their communities, as well as with each other, to get through the tough times.

Over at the FHO site, I've posted some information on a forensic compliance self-assessment from EVAW. EVAW is the technical assistance provider on this issue, and they've put out some great information on their site. If you have questions about your own program's compliance, definitely check it out.

Fieldstone Alliance has a great piece on the keys to collaboration you might find useful. Aside from outlining the 4 areas needed for collaboration, it also has a section on elements of successful collaboration that might be of particular interest. Best of all, as with so many of their resources, it's written concisely, with lots of bullet points for easy digestion. My only beef with their stuff is that they don't offer printable views.

MNCASA is offering a webinar March 22nd, 12pm CT on protocol development and renewing interagency agreements. This should be an excellent session, addressing two issues we see frequently in the sustainability TA project. This webinar will describe the process of writing or adapting protocols, renewing interagency agreements, and training on protocol.
