Building Strategic Relationships - A Toolkit for the Social Sector

Publication date: 
January 2016

The information and tools outlined in this toolkit are designed to assist in the exploration, implementation and analysis of strategic relationships with community organisations and commercial businesses.

This toolkit aims to build upon organisations' strategic thinking, business models, workforce development and person centred practice so that the good work can continue in contributing to civil society by generating shared collective value.

It has a strong focus on the different types of partnerships and their purpose, how to identify opportunities and practical tips to support the ongoing journey. Organisations are encouraged to work their way through this resource and, if needed, seek additional support.

Compiled by Phil Preston of The Collaborative Advantage with input and assistance from ACTCOSS, for the Ready4 program.
