Collaborations are "hybrid organizations" created to solve society's new, more complex issues. But collaborations themselves are vulnerable to their own complexities, and their success in solving technical, scientific, political and social problems is based on the design of their governance framework. This session is a hands-on exercise for designing collaborative governance frameworks. Participants learn what type of governance actor they are, what style of governance they prefer, and what organizational governance footprints are. With this new knowledge, participants can provide leadership in creating effective governance frameworks for community, corporate, environment, and other "civic governance" efforts.
