A Dynamic Model of Collaborative Capacity in Health Transformation Efforts

Hirsch, Gary; Isaacs, Kathryn; and Wageman, Ruth. (2015). A Dynamic Model of Collaborative Capacity in Health Transformation efforts. Working paper. This study of 20 health transformation collaboratives around the U.S. explores what conditions, created by leaders, most enable these efforts to create collaborative capacity—the ability to enact more and greater changes over time. It identifies the key positive conditions that can create growth loops and strong upward trajectories, and the unintended ways that such efforts can get off course and hit reversals. The research offers more than just a checklist of conditions for success: it shows how collaborative capacity is a dynamic process and how leaders can act to prevent pitfalls and build momentum over time.
