Solving the complex public policy problems we face today has come to exceed the capacity
of any one sector – private, public or civic. Increasingly, people are working across
sectors, jurisdictions, and diverse interests to make decisions and take actions together.
Collaborative problem solving, consensus building, and multi-stakeholder dispute resolution
were once considered interesting alternatives and last resorts when conventional approaches
failed. Now, they are becoming standard management practices and are being integrated
into the way we govern ourselves and our scarce resources, public services, and human
capital. Collaboration is becoming the 21st century’s governance tool of choice and
People with skills in collaborative problem solving are finding jobs in government,
nongovernmental organizations and the private sector in such careers as:
Community and Regional Planner, Forest Planner, Senior Mediator, Public Health Specialist,
City Manager, Forest Ranger, Executive Director, Environmental Policy Analyst, Outreach
Local, state, regional, and national governing bodies are practicing collaborative
governance more and more across the county. You can find examples of communities using
collaborative approaches in community development, energy, environment and natural
resources, health care, human services, telecommunications, and land use and transportation.
