  • Yesterday's institutions weren't designed for today's realities.
  • That's something that global leaders like you continue to learn every day. The solution? Transform your capabilities in order to address emergent social challenges in a different way.
  • It's not just about "fixing government." Indeed, government needs to take the lead by combing the overall capacities of society’s different sectors and institutions in joint problem-solving initiatives. The skills needed to create these new arrangements are not those used to run traditional top-down organizations. Instead, they are the ones social entrepreneurs use to marshal diverse resources beyond their direct control.
Collaborative Solutions in Governance: A Different Strategy:
  • Creating Collaborative Solutions: Innovations in Governance is a one-week executive program exploring these groundbreaking efforts. Led by Harvard Kennedy School Professor Mark Moore, this program reveals new modes of working collaboratively across traditional political and organizational boundaries to identify, understand and address emerging social problems.
