Very interesting and thought provoking! This book provides a fantastic framework for collaboration. The framework was relevant to my community and this book has been a very insightful resource. I would highly recommend this approach to anyone struggling to foster collaboration in their work.

This wasn't actually what I was looking for when I ordered the book. It is for organizations that want to blend more. I wanted collaboration within the leadership of one organization. Thus the reason for my lowish score.

This book is very relative to what I do on a daily basis and part of my job to collaborate and work with participants and other community partners. I appreciate the easy read and the step by step process there is in the book. "Collaboration Handbook: Creating, Sustaining and Enjoying the Journey" is more geared to working with colleagues than collaborating in a client/coordinator context. It is useful information that is helpful.

The Collaboration Handbook is a great "how-to" guide for working with diverse groups, with lots of practical advice and useful handouts.

This collaboration handbook, another great publication by Fieldstone Alliance. They make the information so accessible and easy to grasp. I really think this is an invaluable resource. I have already recommended this to someone who is working with a board of directors on staff development.

A great book if you are working with several different entities, but less helpful if you are trying to work on enhancing collaboration within a single company.

An excellent foundation to help plan on the collaboration between entities on projects. One that will instill teamwork amongst many civic and corporate players to get a special goal completed.

Great book for me, a beginner at big community collaborations. Definitely practical and positive. I'll be using what I learned with a number of different groups.

This book was particularly helpful in mobilizing a group from defining their vision to some very practical and creative ways to carry out an effective action plan. Great for this new community organizer! Thank you.

I found this book to be really helpful as I tried to pull together a disparate group in recent project. The explanation of how to work together presented in this book were useful and clear. I found that the approaches were simple yet effective and I appreciated the insight into how to evaluate collaborative processes.

Though simplified, it does seem to apply to nearly all situations. The scenarios are ones that could happen anywhere

I using this helpful guide while actively engaged in a collaboration with many persons, many "styles" of working, and it is reassuring and helpful all the way. I enjoy the side bar notes and references that take me back and forward reminders that collaboration is not linear, it is a process and it gets messy.

Lots of resourceful worksheets in the appendix. Story example a little dry yet relevant by demonstrating an outline for community projects and step by step how-to collaborate.

I work with many collaborative groups and am always looking for ways to build my knowledge base and be more effective. This book brought things back to the basics which was really good and gave me some more tips to hold more worthwhile collaborative meetings.
