Pursuing and Securing Collaboration to Improve Results


by Hal A. Lawson - 2003

In this chapter, I first identify collaboration’s “sister strategies” (e.g., cooperation, coordination). These other “c-words” comprise a developmental progression for collaboration and help define it. Then I present examples of the needs, problems, and conditions that invite and require collaboration. Next I identify different kinds of collaboration, revealing choices and suggesting combinations. Then I present examples of collaboration’s essential features and requirements. I conclude with questions about the institutional aims of collaboration and school-linked services. Is the aim to fortify and maintain existing institutions? Or is the aim to transform them and create new ones? I sketch responses to both questions, and I include higher education’s roles.
