o Recommend improvements
Part B – Design an Interagency Collaboration (1,000 words)
The interagency collaboration you design should ideally be related to your current occupation and involve multiple agencies acting at different ‘levels’ (e.g. Utilities (operations, management, and senior management), Government, Non-government etc).You should relate the activity back to the definition of collaboration in the week 3 My Content; “Collaboration is a process that involves two or more stakeholders, who pool their resources and appreciations to jointly make decisions about a set of problems” (adapted from Gray 1985:912 by Kelly 2011).
For private sector Interagency Collaboration, consider Co-opetition such as contribution to or development of Industry Standards.It is OK to base your design on an existing collaboration that you are already aware of or participate in, but be sure to either;
o Start from scratch in the design and pretend the activity does not already exist.
o Improve upon any existing documents which describe the collaboration, or
o Design a way of extending the activity into other areas
Respond to these key issues;
o With whom are you collaborating and why?
o What are the key considerations in forming a Collaboration?
o How have you incorporated this into the Design of your Collaboration?
o Consider risks and unknowns, how will you approach these
