Sample text

The first section of this book considers how collaboration is framed and defined, and part of this endeavor must begin with considering the broader theoretical base from which definitions are derived. Thus this chapter proceeds as follows. First, we review systems-based collaboration frameworks primarily from public administration scholarship and organizational, behavioral, and political science works that have significantly informed public administration literature. Second, we examine literature on typologies and ‘interorganizational arrays,’ which specify constructs and operationalizations of collaboration and other related interaction terms.

Another key observation is the complexity of collaboration structures, especially within a single policy domain. Huxham and Vangen (2005) show that often multiple collaborations exist within any policy domain, and most have overlapping goals, structures, and participants.
