Summarize and analyze the findings from the inventory and your interviews, incorporating material from the required course readings and your own research.

Please use the following format to conduct your evaluation of a collaboration/partnership. 

Collecting Data

  • With input from your past/current field supervisor or contact person within the organization you are using for this assignment, select a collaboration to evaluate.
  • To evaluate the partnership for your chosen organization, you will conduct two (2) interviews. You will complete the Wilder Collaboration Factors Inventory with the partnership representatives during the interview. Interviews may be conducted in any format to which you both agree (e.g., webex, phone, Zoom, Google hangout, in-person, etc.).
  • Gather and review written materials that describe the collaboration such as a grant, memorandum of understanding, or written guidelines. 

Interview Guide: Use the following guide for your interviews, making adaptations as needed. 

Begin by

  • Explain the purpose of your assignment, including how you will conduct the interview.
  • Explain the purpose of the Inventory and how to complete it using the instructions found in the Mattessich, et al book (Please see the instructions attached)
  • Administer the Wilder Collaboration Factors Inventory prior to or at the beginning of your interview (Please see the Wilder Collaborations Factors Inventory Attached). Ask the representative to answer the questions on the Inventory based on his/her/their involvement in the collaboration. 

Questions

  • You will also ask questions beyond the Inventory itself. [Not all the questions need to be asked; figure out which ones would be the most appropriate to ask for your specific evaluation.]

Sample background questions include:

  • Why was the collaboration started? What is the purpose of the collaboration? Why is your agency involved in this collaboration? 
  • How long have you been involved in the collaboration? What is your role?
  • What do you think your organization and other entities/organizations accomplish by being in this collaboration that you could not do on your own?
  • What do you think are the strengths and/or benefits of the collaboration?
  • What do you think are the challenges and/or weaknesses of the collaboration?

Sample questions based on collaboration factors include: 

  • How has the political, social or economic environment facilitated your work in the collaboration? For example, current social policies, organizational policies, economic conditions? 
  • How has the political, social or economic environment challenged your work in the collaboration? For example, current social policies, organizational policies, economic conditions? 
  • What is the level of respect and trust among collaboration members? Can you give an example?
  • How open, adaptable and flexible is the group in how it conducts its work? How clear are the roles and guidelines for the group?
  • How engaged are other members of your organization in the collaboration? How do they view the work of the collaboration?
