Leadership for Networks Designed to Change Systems - ReAmp Case Study

Presenters: Heather McLeod Grant and Rick Reed

Date: Tuesday, December 6th 11:00AM - 12:00 Noon PST (2:00PM - 3:00PM EST)

Much has been written about the power of collaborative networks and shared leadership to increase social impact. For nonprofits and funders that want to go deeper on the tactics of how to build an effective network—and what kind of unique leadership is needed within networks—it is useful to understand how RE-AMP has done it. RE-AMP's process was grounded in the tools of systems dynamics and multi-stakeholder facilitation. But RE-AMP combined these well-known "best practices" with network-centric "next practices"—including different leadership at different stages in the network’s evolution. During its two-month study of RE-AMP, Monitor Institute identified six key principles that RE-AMP members followed in building their network and described them for other social-sector leaders in a case study.

A Scan of Leadership Development Efforts in the Greater Washington Region PDF file [download] [more info]

The production of this scan is an outgrowth of meetings of Greater Washington region grantmakers to explore opportunities for working together to accelerate positive changes in the region. The funders group identified the need to build the leadership capacity in the region and collectively decided to commission a scan to better understand the leadership needs and the strengths and limitations of local leadership and capacity building efforts. They partnered with the Nonprofit Roundtable of Greater Washington, an organization committed to building the strength, visibility, and influence of the nonprofit sector. The Roundtable invited the Leadership Learning Community (LLC) to conduct the scan.
