This chapter focuses on factors that play a key role in transforming a collaborative idea into practice. It states that participants and evaluators engaged in such collaborative efforts need to use certain queries to identify a suitable approach to collaboration, which will help in transforming it from an idea into practice. Collaborative efforts are undertaken within a wide range of societal, economic, and environmental driving factors, with a significant impact on trends and practical implementation. The chapter suggests that a number of outcome indicators need to be considered to achieve the desired results from such a collaborative effort. These indicators need to establish the fundamental conditions and collect data required to evaluate the progress. The chapter concludes that failure to achieve the desired results should also be regarded positively and used as an opportunity to reassess new approaches or renewed efforts to achieve results.

Keywords:   collaborative idea, practical implementation, outcome indicators, collaborative efforts
