AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- nFocus Solutions™,the leading provider of performance management, training and outcome measurement solutions, will debut its groundbreaking Collective Ideas to Collective Impact at Communities for Change 2012. Communities for Change is nFocus' annual leadership symposium aimed at bridging the achievement gap in education through integrated school and community partnerships.


Written on behalf of nFocus Solutions, the Guide is designed to assist local officials, schools' district leaders, nonprofit directors and foundation leaders who are considering joining the growing number of "collective impact" based collaborative initiatives. Drawn from interviews with leaders from Omaha's Building Bright Futures initiative and Boston's citywide youth collaborative, composed of the Boston Centers for Youth and Families, Boston After School and Beyond and Boston About Results, the Guide applies experiences and lessons learned while detailing the advantages to investing in a shared system, how to select a technology provider, effective training practices and how to sustain a long-term data effort.
