Collective Impact Initiative Definition and the Five Conditions of Collective Success
(John Kania & Mark Kramer, SSIR, 2010)
Collective Impact is the commitment of a group of important actors from different sectors to a common agenda for solving a complex social problem.
Successful collective impact initiatives typically have five conditions that together produce true alignment and lead to powerful results: a common agenda, shared measurement systems, mutually reinforcing activities, continuous communication, and backbone support organizations.
Theme : Transformation of Collective Impact for the Next Normal
It has been ten years since the Collective Impact Initiatives were introduced through SSIR. The article was downloaded over 500,000 times. In this regard, we thought that the initiatives had a huge influence on many people’s thoughts and behaviors. The conference aims to diagnose the trends and status of Collective Impact, suggest ways to prepare for the next normal, and discuss how to make a better world through transformed collective actions.
Ecosystem partners are key partners who supported the event in various ways, including interview arrangements, moderator/speakers, development of each session, contents design, operation and promotion of events, PR, etc.
