cultivating systems leadership in cross-sector partnerships

academic article: equal measure


What is this resource?

This resource reflects on lessons learnt from a systems change experiment that involved multiple stakeholders. It  examines systems leadership issues and how to enable effective systems leaders. It includes a short literature review on systems leadership and outlines systems leadership attributes and skills.

Why is it worthwhile?

Significant focus has shifted towards working with ‘systems’, particularly in funding agencies and philanthropic agencies who are seeking greater impact beyond traditional program outcomes. However, understanding of how to enable systems skills and capacities in individuals, agencies and regions is only just beginning. This report offers some initial ideas identifying systems skills and how to build this capacity at a regional level.

Who is it useful for?

This resource will be of interest to those wanting to develop, teach or enable systems skill and capacity.
