A Network Approach to Capacity Building

Using networks to increase capacity

In our experience, nonprofits that are part of a network leverage resources and knowledge to build capacity more effectively than those that “go it alone.” Our publication, A Network Approach to Capacity Building, offers examples of how networks are especially effective for capacity building because they catalyze innovation, improve communications, reduce duplication of past mistakes, and spread good ideas faster and more efficiently than may typically occur in other capacity building approaches.
