Here we offer up a tried and true resource that we have used MANY times over the last decade with MANY different groups. This information can help you talk about, identify and distinguish the different ways of working together.
The video will walk you through the original research on “Interagency Efforts” and the resulting Collaboration Continuum.
We’ve added a few questions to get you thinking about how to apply what you hear.

Do the continuum definitions change the way you view any of your partnerships? If so, how?
How does the sliding scale of TRUST & TURF help explain any of the collaboration tensions you experience?
