In my professional life, it's easy to get caught up in present work and forget all the amazing projects and organizations I've had the privilege to collaborate with. These days I'm the Executive Director of a fantastic organization 3.5 days each week. I'm in the exploration mode for what to do with the remaining professional consulting time (other than my constant blogging with Folks Gotta Eat and rabble.ca).
Today I have cause to reflect on my previous professional contributions. The Centre for Social Innovation released their new book Network Evaluation: Cultivating Healthy Networks for Social Change. It's the culmination of a series of "think tank" sessions I was proud to be part of, convened by the Centre for Social Innovation and the Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation. If you're engaged in network development or management, this book contains some fantastic tools for assessing the health and vibrancy of your network.
