One week after putting the finishing touches on her dissertation, Jennifer Pelletier still has energy and enthusiasm to present the results of her research to interested audiences. This month’s Bagels Beyond Boundaries, sponsored by the Center for Integrative Leadership (CIL), attracted an audience of individuals from the MN Department of Transportation, the Urban & Regional Planning department, St. Paul community organizing councils, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and more. The diversity in the audience reflects the nature of the broad appeal of Dr. Pelletier’s research. Dr. Pelletier’s work highlights a case study for a cross-sector collaboration that is behind Minnesota’s rise to national leadership in promoting safe routes to school for children.
Measuring the success of collaborative work motivated by an interest in combining the strengths of different sectors and disciplines to address society’s grand challenges is a nebulous business. Dr. Pelletier seeks to do so first by defining what would constitute a “successful” collaboration and then by taking an in-depth, multi-disciplinary approach to analyzing the success of a network of actors from public health, transportation planning, education, and public safety who are jointly responsible for designing and implementing Minnesota’s Safe Routes to School program. She uses data from the School Health Policies and Programs Study (SHPPS) as well as qualitative data derived from field interviews she conducted with key stakeholders in the network to determine the key ingredients of successful collaboration. She found that Minnesota’s success in the campaign to get children walking and biking to school can be explained by four major factors: finding the right people, pulling them from the right places, establishing clearly defined achievable objectives, and capacity building in local communities to see a broad-base of effective, collaborative leaders.
CIL exists to discover the form and function of leadership that generates collective action across sectors and disciplines to launch a unified campaign in addressing society’s grand challenges. One aspect of Dr. Pelletier’s research that contributes specifically to this aim is the analysis of the types of leaders she found at the heart of the successful collaboration. These leaders possess the ability to facilitate an environment of validating the input of stakeholders at all levels of power and the ability to identify a common interest in a sea of multifaceted agendas. They excel in the process-oriented tasks of collaboration, building close relationships with the individuals in the network, cultivating the potential of individuals leading at the community level, and facilitating information and knowledge-sharing in the work.

Projections indicate the Minneapolis-Saint Paul region could be 100,000 skilled workers short of demand by 2020. Given new realities, dozens of states and regions have launched highly-resourced programs to retain and attract the most-in demand and mobile segments of the workforce. Our region had no strategic response – until last fall, when GREATER MSP and more than 70 organizations collectively launched Make It. MSP. No single organization possesses the knowledge or resources to take this challenge on alone. Building, launching, and now implementing the initiative requires cross-sector leaders to work collectively to help solve their own organizational needs.
On March 25 the Hubert Humphrey School of Public Affairs, the Center for Integrative Leadership and the Public and Nonprofit Leadership Center hosted a half-day workshop focused on assessing public value in a cross-sectoral world. Specifically, the Workshop was a interactive and engaging session focused on public value accounting and public value mapping.
Welcome and Panel
• Welcome, Dean Eric Schwartz, Humphrey School of Public Affairs
• The significance of the public value movement with John Bryson (Humphrey School of Public Affairs)
• Observations on the movement with Kathy Quick (University of Minnesota), Tina Nabatchi (Syracuse) and Mary Feeney (Arizona State University)
Public Value Accounting (PVA): Mark Moore from the Harvard Kennedy School
Mark Moore from the Harvard Kennedy School will help participants understand and use Public Value Accounting (PVA). As he notes, PVA can do for government managers what the financial “bottom line” does for business managers, meaning the PVA approach provides an overall assessment of the worth of a public endeavor in relation to its costs. Unlike business financial accounting, however, PVA recognizes three major features of government operations that differ from private-sector concepts of individual or market value. First, the assets that government uses to produce public value include authority as well as money. Second, PVA recognizes that individuals and their material satisfaction are not necessarily the appropriate arbiters of public value. Third, when government acts, the public will also apply standards of justice and fairness to what it does. The cost and the benefit sides of a PVA are thus different from a business balance sheet.
Public Value Mapping (PVM): Barry Bozeman from Arizona State University
Barry Bozeman from Arizona State University will help participants understand and apply Public Value Mapping (PVM). This method takes into account the fact that public endeavors are motivated and guided by entire constellations of values beyond market-based concepts of economic efficiency and effectiveness. PVM is designed as a counterweight to such widely used market-based tools as cost-benefit analysis. PVM broadens the consideration of values by juxtaposing market successes and failures with public value successes and failures to provide a richer picture of the ways in which a public value endeavor either succeeds or not (or could be expected to succeed or not) against the array of relevant public values and market-based values. PVM proceeds in four steps: (1) identifying relevant public values, (2) assessing public value successes and failures, (3) mapping the public values, and (4) mapping the relationships between public value and market value successes and failures.
Founded in 2009, Minnesota Rising is a network of emerging leaders in Minnesota. Minnesota Rising works to build relationships, trust, and a shared vision for Minnesota, and focuses on developing the collective capacity of this generation for impacting Minnesota's future. Join founder Diane Tran and supporting steward Eriks Dunens talk about Minnesota Rising as well as introduce their Cascading Conversation initiative. CIL has invited its interdisciplinary student initiative called Common Grounds to participate in the discussion.
Cascading conversations have sparked fun, engaging opportunities for people to discuss their values and visions for Minnesota’s future and to share how they could make that future a reality. Our objective is to strengthen the network and capacity of emerging leaders in Minnesota and to work toward a shared vision for the future of our state. While we cannot develop a strategic plan for our generation, we can be strategic about our intentions for the Minnesota we will create together. The cascading conversations tour is an attempt to discover what we have in common, to learn about what’s working in Minnesota that we can build on, and to uncover how we can work individually and collectively to achieve the future we desire. We invite anyone and everyone who thinks this matters to join us in these conversations!
The Urban Adventure Program and the Center for Integrative Leadership are pleased to invite you to a dialogue and reception celebrating the inspiring local community members whose stories are in Peter Heegaard's newest book Turnabout.
Turnabout tells the stories of individuals who crossed boundaries in and outside themselves to move from dependency to self-sufficiency. Please join us as we learn from their insights and experiences. Peter Heegaard will be signing copies of Turnabout, which will be available for purchase, at the event.
Heegaard is also the author of Heroes Among Us and More Bang for Your Buck.
Steve Lepinski has served as CEO of Washburn Center since 1987 and has been a leader in shaping children’s mental health policy in Minnesota. Come discuss and reflect with Steve how working across boundaries has created and sustained the capacity to best serve our communities’ children. Most recently he was the catalyst behind bringing governmental and private leaders together to fund and open the new facility for the Washburn Center for Children. Over the years he has served on boards and commissions for many collaborative efforts including the Minnesota Association of Community Mental Health Programs, Minnesota Mental Health Action Group (MHAG), and Minnesota Children’s Mental Health Partnership.

This month's forum will feature Aaron Sojourner,
Assistant Professor, Carlson School of Management. He will discuss his research
into how the role of unions in society and politics has long generated
controversy. While some view unions as representing the political interests of
working families broadly, others view them as just a special interest advocating
for a narrow slice of society at the expense of the rest. As these debates catch
fire in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, Minnesota, and elsewhere, Professor Sojourner
offers a fresh look at a role unions play. Read more here. RSVP

Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) is the most devastating animal disease circulating in the world today. FMD exists in much of the world and when the disease spreads to new countries, it becomes headline news, like the outbreaks in North and South Korea, South Africa and Vietnam this year alone. The damage caused by FMD goes far beyond the affected cattle, pigs, sheep and other animals. The traditional “stamping out” approach to stopping the disease and the resulting disruption of trade can cost billions of dollars. Further, while the infection doesn’t spread to humans, public health implications can be extensive as a result of the psycho‐social impacts of destruction of prized animals, loss of livelihoods for many rural families, the disruption of local economies and the stigma of quarantines and adverse media coverage.
Tough issues like FMD response and recovery strategies require a broad perspective, an inquisitive mind, and a commitment to collaboration. The University of Minnesota’s Center for Integrative Leadership and Global Initiative for Food Systems Leadership invite you to participate in the second of a series of “Finding Common Ground” forums designed to foster conversation among participants with diverse perspectives to discover and advance a common good. Participants from academia, media, Industry, intergovernmental, nongovernmental and governmental organizations will examine this issue in a neutral forum that considers multiple perspectives.
