I’ve pointed to a wide range of ideas about collaboration, innovation, knowledgemanagement, etc. in the Tutor/Mentor Library athttp://tinyurl.com/TMI-ProcessImp-Collaborationand I think some of these ideas might enable us to find ways to workcollectively, yet operate independently.
I’ve also been creating maps to help groups in the same geographic areas worktogether, or to help groups with common goals connect with each other.This week
I created a new map just to illustrate how many different groups in Chicagoare acting in intermediary roles to connect people they know to each other, and toinfluence actions of the group that affect the well-being of kids.

While this map represents a few of the organizations working to help kids, I’m sure it isonly a fraction of the organizations in the Chicago region or the nation who need to beconnected in what I call a “network of purpose”. Each of the nodes in the graphic belowrepresents a network of potentially many organizations and many resources. Unlesssomeone creates a map showing members of the network, and web sites, they are notconnecting their members to each other, or helping leaders and members of othernetworks connect with to them.This graphic is from an essay titled“Building a Network of Purpose” foundathttp://tinyurl.com/TMI-Network-of-purpose
I’ve been hosting a conference inChicago every six months since May1994
and on June 14, 2012 I’ll behosting a one-day event, invitingmembers of this network to gather,share ideas, build relationships and playways to help more programs obtainvolunteers and financial support as theschool year starts again in August. See
