Case Study of an Urban Leadership Development Partnership: Understanding and Leveraging Comparative Advantages

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper examines an inter-organizational partnership forged among four urban districts, an educational improvement organization, a local foundation, and faculty from three universities in service of developing future urban leaders. Early results of the program are positive, and this paper explores the nature of the partnership that is fostering initial success. The paper examines how the “comparative advantage” of partner organizations and their representatives were identified, leveraged, and aligned into a coherent program with positive results upon prospective leaders and participating districts. Findings suggest that the organizations behind the program utilize the respective comparative advantages to foster a division of labor. The experience of these partners suggests that leverage comparative advantages in an aligned and effective manner requires a deep commitment of time and collaboration, the development of explicit channels of communication, and the willingness to move beyond what is simply convenient.
