April 28, 2020
Collective impact is an innovative and structured approach to systems change. The process brings together a wide variety of stakeholders who use data to identify root causes of a problem. 

Once the problem's complexity is understood, the group implements solutions and monitors outcomes by using shared measures. This approach consists of five characteristics which include:
  • a common agenda
  • shared measures
  • mutually reinforcing activities
  • continuous communication
  • a backbone organization
