Beyond Consensus

This chapter focuses on some of the factors that play a key role in sustaining collaborative initiatives. Extensive analysis of different factors reveals that collaborative leadership is a crucial factor for keeping up such collaborative efforts. Collaborative leaders are able to work jointly with different organizations, agencies, and people with a wide range of interests. These leaders work with these entities and help in the consensus-building process necessary for sustaining a collaborative initiative. External pressure also has a significant impact on sustaining a collaborative project over a specific time period. Stability of collaboration also plays a key role in sustaining organizations engaged in it, along with its successful implementation. The chapter concludes that the factors discussed here will help researchers, evaluators, and groups seeking better assessment of their work to improve their approaches.
