'Go to' guide to support your organisation with the typical lifecycle of a collaborative project
The P4P Collaboration Toolkit is aimed at third sector organisations that are considering working together with others to pool resources, deliver new products/services, or to do things more innovatively.
The toolkit has been developed to support organisations to self-assess attitudes, capability, and hopefully possibilities for collaborative working.
You can use the guide as a quick ‘go to’ guide to collaboration and to track your progress. It has been prepared with three phases that follow the typical lifecycle of a collaborative project.
The guidance document should be used in conjunction with the Collaboration Toolkit online survey. The survey will ask you to self-evaluate your progress against a range of factors that demonstrate best practice when developing a collaborative project. Once you complete and submit the online survey P4P will generate an Excel report and dashboard based on your responses which you can use to assess how ‘collaboration ready’ your organisation is.
You can use the follow-up survey at any time thereafter to record, self-assess and track your progress over time.
