Working collaboratively with other organisations is not a new phenomenon. At present however, charities are under pressure to collaborate more to cope with an uncertain political landscape, reductions in funding and the need to work more efficiently. But just how effective is collaboration in enabling the sector to do more with fewer resources?

In this article, I will highlight findings from a programme of research on the management of inter-organizational collaboration that has been ongoing for two decades, and which draws on the experiences of individuals who are working collaboratively. Over the years, the insight gained has accumulated into theory called "collaborative advantage".
