Assessing Strategic Partnership
Last Updated: Monday 25 September 2017
The Strategic Partnership Taskforce in the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister commissioned the Nuffield Institute at the University of Leeds to provide a Tool that local authorities can use to assess partnership relationships and aid the achievement of successful partnership working.
The tool draws heavily on the research carried out by the Institute that had been successful for health and social care partnerships. With input from Strategic Partnering Pathfinders, the Tool has been adapted for the wider local government service areas and with a particular focus on strategic partnerships.
It is quick and simple to use and provides a practical way for senior officers, project managers and others to implement meaningful partnerships that will make a difference to the lives of the citizens in their area.
