HELPING TO IMPROVE COLLABORATION WITH BUSINESS
Recovery requires a wide range of people and organisations to work together, often in combinations and ways they haven’t before. Shared goals, clear roles and the right structures and resources must be in place for these collaborations to be successful.
Businesses have a critical role in enabling recovery through the contributions they make. Often they can only do this in partnership with others. We believe that the business community has a huge amount of skills, resources and relationships that it can contribute to recovery.
Through this project we want to identify and champion ways to improve how the business community can work more effectively across all of the sectors involved in recovery: business; community; central government and local government.
We want to look at the Canterbury recovery to date and identify: what went well and what didn’t; what helped and what got in the way; what should be improved; and what else could be tried.
We are particularly interested in:
- The level and effectiveness of collaboration between businesses, within and across sectors.
- What business collaborations and partnerships were there or should have been there?
- What contributed to the success or otherwise of those collaborations?
