This interactive toolkit is based on a model for smarter partnerships developed from research for the Local Government National Training Organisation. Four main themes lead the user through the toolkit and provide information and resources concerning: leadership, trust, learning, and managing for performance. Each theme is addressed at different levels throughout the resource, and underpins a clear framework for review, skills development and supporting new and existing partnership structures and functions.One diagnostic tool helps users assess how well a partnership is functioning, and recommends steps to strengthen it. Another can be used by individuals, teams or partners to identify their learning and skills needs. A range of case studies and facilitation tools are provided, along with links to other resources relevant to learning and improving partnership performance. Registered users receive periodic updates detailing new resources and additions to the site.
