Key questions and considerations for coordinating
- What is the existing level of coordination among major activities happening in your community? Are there duplicative efforts?
- Are there existing efforts that would be more strategic or impactful if there was collaboration?
- Are there efforts that are currently in siloes that would benefit from participating in or coordinating around a larger conversation, campaign, process?
- What would greater coordination allow you to do more effectively or powerfully?
- What assets exist in your area that can be reoriented to advance your goals or broader vision? Who has the power or influence to shift or coordinate your assets?
- Are there tensions within communities that might be resolved through relationship-building and dialogue?
