COLLECTIVE IMPACT

STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS

Collective impact is a powerful approach that occurs when organizations from different sectors agree to solve a specific social problem using a common agenda, aligning their efforts, and using common measures of success to achieve measurable effects on major social issues.
SHI uses a Collective Impact approach to champion bold ideas, combined with disciplined systems for evaluating, executing, and adapting ideas over time. Successful collective impact initiatives typically have 5 conditions that together produce alignment and lead to powerful results:

  • A common agenda,
  • Shared measurement systems,
  • Mutually reinforcing activities,
  • Continuous communication, and
  • Backbone support organizations.

Creating shared value entails embedding a social mission in an organisation’s culture and channelling resources to the development of innovations that can help solve social problems.

SHI works closely with clients to create, launch, and monitor their Shared Value strategy implementation plans, including a purpose-driven brand strategy, that take into account the organisation’s operating realities. We work alongside clients in this implementation all the way to measurable success.
