Tamarack Institute Webinar 

Let’s Commit! Collaboration Ownership and Accountability

June 5, 2024, 1:00-2:00 PM ET 



Collaboration is critical for organizations and people working to improve communities. And yet, many collaboration leaders express frustration that not all members of their collaboration table have the same level of commitment to each other and the shared goal. These members may have joined the collaboration but may not be fully committed. 

Tamarack recently published a new resource focused on building accountability across collaboration teams. The accountability matrix is designed to clarify the roles, relationships, impact and decision-making practices of collaboration tables. In the resource, accountability is defined as the relationship between the different partners involved in the collaboration. There is the personal accountability that an individual brings the collaboration, that they will live up to their commitments. There is also the collective accountability between the partners to ensure that the collaboration is moving forward successfully and achieves its defined goals.

In this webinar, Liz Weaver and Sylvia Cheuy to explore how collaborations can benefit from building an accountability matrix. The goal of an accountability matrix is to create clarity of roles, expectations and contributions of collaboration partners and members. You will walk away with a deeper understanding of the resource and will have an opportunity to construct the first steps of your accountability matrix.

You will be invited share your collaboration questions and resources. Join Liz and Sylvia for a lively hour of dialogue as we explore together how the collaboration experience can become impactful by using an accountability matrix.
