1. Readiness Runway

Welcome to the Readiness Runway! This phase of the Collaborative Change Cycle
is all about cultivating urgency for change, having conversations and dialogue about the need for working differently, forming relationships, and building trust.

 

What you might see  

  • There is little or no community level data readily available;
  • Organisations are producing data to plan and report on. Usually focused on their own individual organisation or program and about activities and outputs rather than outcomes;
  • There is limited or no data sharing between organisations, due to a sense of ownership over data they collect, and competition between organisations;
  • Learning is taking place within individual organisations, focused on improving organisational performance, and unlikely to be shared with other organisations or the community;
  • The community have little or no access to the data that informs decisions about investment in policies, services or programs.

 

 

What you can do 

  • Identify quantitative and qualitative data that will help tell the story and describe the current state of play; 
  • Develop a shared narrative, starting with the community’s concerns, interests and aspirations, and then adding quantitative data where relevant. This should be done slowly, with drafts being tested and refined by various stakeholders;
  • Workshop the data with diverse stakeholders to generate new insights and foster shared understanding;
  • Bring together the available research and other available data about the community to identify what you already have and gaps there may be.
