The Center for the Advancement of Collaborative Strategies in Health (CACSH) Partnership Self-Assessment Tool was designed to help partnerships understand how collaboration works and what it means to create a successful collaborative process; to assess how well collaborative processes are working; and to identify specific areas to focus on that can improve the collaborative process. The tool measures a key indicator of a successful collaborative process - the partnership's level of synergy. It identifies the partnership's strengths and weaknesses in areas that are known to be related to synergy - leadership, efficiency, administration and management, and sufficiency of resources. It also measures partners' perspectives about the partnership's decision-making process, the benefits and drawbacks they experience as a result of participating in the partnership, and their overall satisfaction with the partnership.
