The Collaborative Change Library

Your Global Guide to transforming organizations, revitalizing communities, and developing human potential:

Collaborative change is the achievement of mutually desired outcomes through the purposeful experience of sharing among two or more people.

Many powerful collaborative change approaches are being used around the world to transform organizations, revitalize communities, and develop human potential - and methods and practices based on these new approaches are continuing to proliferate. This growing resource for the methods and tools of Collaborative Change & Innovation will bring together over 100 different collaborative change methods to date—with a full chapter devoted to each method, covering all aspects of the method, including its purpose, principles, process, keys to mastery, applications, technological tools, and theoretical and empirical foundations.  In addition, over 30 other chapters will provide a user guide on selecting, applying, and using the methods—and blending them as needed as well as adapting them to unique situations. The result will be a living and growing community of knowledge.
 
This publication will include all of the most widely used collaborative change methods:

  • Appreciative Inquiry,

  • Graphic Facilitation,

  • Open Space Technology,

  • Drum Café,

  • Whole Scale Change,

  • Future Search,

  • World Café, etc.

… as well as dozens of new and emerging methods that have proven themselves highly useful but are not yet as widely known (and have not appeared in previous compendiums) like:

  • Constellations,

  • Liberating Structures,

  • Applied Improvisation,

  • Genuine Contact,

  • Full Voice,

  • Group Relation Conferences,

  • Spiritual Group Processes,

  • Zegg Forum, and many more.

All of this knowledge will be available in both print and e-book formats—and also through the NEXUS4changeApp [beta coming in summer 2019] that will provide access to the book and periodic updates of new methods, practices, and applications.  This encyclopedic publication will save readers a great deal of time—and make them more productive and effective in their work—by bringing together methods, tools, practices, and approaches that are currently scattered in scores of different books, articles, and websites.
