Living Cities harnesses the collective power of philanthropy and financial institutions to improve the lives of low-income people and the cities where they live. We believe that the innovative aspect of collective impact is not its principles such as alignment of disparate actors toward a common agenda, shared measurement, and carefully structured leadership and communication strategies, but rather who is applying these principles (a cross-sector partnership) and what they are being applied to (a complex social problem). In this article, Living Cities shares what it is learning about the structures and behaviors of a cross-sector partnership that are well-equipped to implement the principles of collective impact.
