A Big Picture Approach...
Promotes effective community work at multiple levels
The five steps of community change management work for community change efforts at all levels, including:
Over-Arching Leadership Councils
Single Issue Coalitions
Can link and align work across those levels
Each step assures that different aspects of alignment are realized:
Taking Shape promotes structural alignment across levels of community action.
Taking Aim promotes goal alignment.
Taking Stock assures that community partnerships have a shared understanding of root causes and underlying conditions – a shared diagnosis.
Targeting Action assures that the interventions and activities pursued by multiple community actors are mutually reinforcing.
Tracking Progress sets the stage for shared measurement which strengthens all steps and provides a platform for assessing collective impact.
