Abstract:The qualitative data suggested that clearly stated goals, communication between the council members, the council membership make-up, and the communication between members and their home organization influenced the collaborative process. Councils with clearly stated goals, effective communication, and representation from all individuals and/or groups affected by the particular issue were more able to actively pursue their ultimate goal of elimination of family violence. Contrary to expectations, the empirical data did not reveal that the four mediating factors predicted sustained progress of a collaboration, but, suggested that these four components were interdependent. Although conceptually strong and supported by the literature, the factor analyses suggested that there was only one factor operating within this measure. The interaction among the mediating variables suggests that collaborations are interactive dynamic systems; thus, best understood from a systems perspective.
