Measuring Success in Coalitions by Mary Thelander( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents research results from evaluations of the effectiveness of coalitions, and also presents a discussion of the identified characteristics of effective coalitions, a measurement tool developed to assess coalition effectiveness, and the application of this tool. Characteristics of successful coalitions and partnerships that have been identified are: (1) positive transfer of authority; (2) open and direct communication; (3) open decision making; (4) shared influence over decision making; and (5) participant involvement. The exploration of the relationships among objectives, characteristics, long term outcomes, and indicators of success had resulted in the development of a framework for evaluation. This framework was used to construct a survey instrument that scores the presence of the identified characteristics of coalition effectiveness that is to be completed by managers of the partner agencies. Scores are used to determine the strength of the coalition at the outset of an evaluation and throughout to monitor changes. The approach has been used in three evaluations, one of which is reported as a case study of the use of the instrument. The case coalition is a partnership of four agencies: a large metropolitan hospital, a small drop-in center with a voluntary board, a public health department, and a women's health center. Focus group discussions showed why the changes documented by the survey instrument occurred. Other factors related to the success of a coalition may be incorporated into the instrument. These include a common philosophical base, the role and accountability of the coordinator, an understanding of differences in partner contributions, control of project structure, and control of project space.
