Aligning Action and Tracking Progress on Shared Community Priorities

A shared measurement system (SMS) is a core element of an effective collective impact structure.  It helps to clarify shared goals, creates accountability for change, organizes partners for action, and helps guide strategy design.    

   Together, the members of the Jackson Collaborative Network have defined a shared measurement system framework that focuses efforts on shared goals and outcomes, helps set strategic priorities for the community, and assists with aligning action and resources to address shared root cause priorities.  

   The shared measures framework is focused on ensuring individuals in the Jackson community achieve the following aims:

  • Our Basic Needs Are Met

  • We Are Safe

  • We Are Healthy

  • We Are Resilient

  • We Achieve Our Full Potential

​   Members are committed to taking action individually within their organizations, and collectively within the community, to address the root causes of systems issues that are producing inequitable outcomes for residents.
