Principles for Partnerships

Relationships are the heart of collaborative work.

May 26, 2022 | The ways we approach and engage in our partnerships matter and can affect the outcomes we hope to achieve together. This document presents a framework of overarching and operating effectiveness principles that are meant to help guide behaviour and action in partnership relationships. It is meant to provide useful guidance based on foundational values, lessons, assumptions and experience from practice, and it builds on existing evidence and literature, and it would benefit from testing, feedback and iteration to ensure relevance and effectiveness.
