Given that Tasmania is a relatively small jurisdiction, there is a real opportunity to utilise the networks and relationships that currently exist across agencies and develop a truly collaborative approach to solving difficult policy issues.

This paper outlines an approach to collaboration which, if applied, should lead to better outcomes for all Tasmanians in terms of improved policy development and service delivery.

All state service employees, at all levels of Government, are encouraged to think about how they can contribute to building a culture of collaboration across Government and apply the critical factors for collaborative success outlined in this document, to achieve improved outcomes for the State.

The approach outlined in this paper will also be complemented by a number of areas for further work as outlined in Annex 5. During 2010/11 an action plan will be developed covering a number of areas such as ensuring a commitment to collaboration, education, support and tools for collaboration.
