The social enterprises we interviewed were adamant that “there is no checklist” that governs their engagement in government partnerships. And yet we saw patterns in the strategies and behaviors that they had refined over time to set them up for success.
This “no-checklist” checklist walks through the three major steps:
- setting a vision for government partnerships (On Your Mark),
- preparing for the engagement (Get Set), and then
- diving in with techniques to build effective partnerships (Go).
Within each step we have summarized key strategies and advice from the field, gathered through our research.
