A Collaborative is an improvement method that relies on the distribution and adaptation of existing knowledge to multiple settings to achieve a common aim. The Collaborative methodology promotes rapid change, allowing practices to experience the benefits in short time frames.
The collaborative methodology uses knowledge about what already works rather than trying out new ideas through research or pilot studies.
- It uses a change management method that is designed to identify where a change actually leads to an improvement.
- Changes are tested in small cycles so they are manageable.
- Changes are measured so that the improvement can be demonstrated.
