IISD's Global Connectivity program has worked for over a decade on research and capacity building for performance assessment and improvement of collaboration. At the heart of collaborative undertakings are people and institutions choosing to work together for a greater good. We have taken on the challenge of learning about improving performance and assessing collaboration in order to help partnerships partner, alliances ally, and networks work. The following paper presents approaches to performance improvement and assessment of groups of individuals working together in networks and communities of practice (CoPs).
