What are you trying to achieve?

Questions that this toolkit will aim to help you answer:

How do we build trust and develop a shared vision?

How do we understand and develop the right governance?

What will we have by the end of this stage?

By the end of this stage, your partnership will have a clear, documented purpose for the information sharing initiative. The documentation will state which organisations share that vision. The documentation will also state who the beneficiaries are of the information sharing initiative.

Why is it important?

Having a clear vision provides a reference point to help decision-making during the following phases of the journey. Identifying who shares that vision makes it easier to establish who is willing to contribute to the partnership’s aims and who to involve in further discussions. Establishing the beneficiaries enables the partnership to think about how to describe and measure success.
