Welcoming You

At this time of disruptive change around the world, we welcome you to join the RCC. We are an open inclusive global community of researchers and change leaders working across multiple sectors to build relationships of shared goals, shared knowledge and mutual respect for high performance and positive change.

RCC Updates

The capacity to work with relational coordination has grown in many sectors around the world since our founding 12 years ago.  In 2021, a systematic review found that RC has been tested in 73 industry sectors and in 36 countries.  Given this spread, the RCC Board has realized that no one organization needs to offer everything.  The RCC has therefore become the hub of a distributed network that provides training, courses, seminars, teaching materials, consulting, coaching, certification, measurement tools, analytic support, interventions and more.   We are an open inclusive global community of researchers and change leaders working together to transform relationships for high performance and positive change.

What the RCC Does

  • Connects members with each other through our website, social media, newsletters, and Cafes
  • Hosts Innovation Labs, offering space on our website for members to organize and develop new ideas together
  • Hosts the Annual Roundtable for members to share their work, renew existing relationships and build new ones
  • Provides a Resource Directory of measurement, training, consulting, analytic and teaching resources that are offered by members in the network
  • Invites you to Become a Member for a cost of $100 per year - and $50 per year for full-time students and for colleagues with significant financial constraints

Community Resources

RELATIONAL COORDINATION SURVEY

The RC Survey is a tool that enables organizations to understand where relationships are strongest and weakest among groups and/or organizations that need to work together. Measuring relational coordination can serve as one of the first diagnostic steps for designing interventions and improving performance. Relational Coordination Analytics has built a user-friendly platform to assess RC with data visualizations, cross-site benchmarking, trends over time, and more.

How RC Transforms Organizations

In Healthcare

"The nurses and therapists started to ask each other, 'What is timely communication for you?' and soon realized that, if the therapists would visit the ICU in the mornings they could better address patient needs and reduce discharge delays. Just one example, and it was not a top-down solution."

- ICU Clinical Coordinator, Billings Clinic

In Education

"Before it was very much about your measures and your data, and no one able to see them but the individual teacher.  Now it's - we're all responsible for all these students and we all own the data.  It's not about pitting people against each other."

- Assistant Superintendent, North Reading School District

In Communities

"We haven't had a tool before for measuring this. One thing is talking about networks; now we can see it."

- Director of Social Health and Employment, Varde Municipality, Denmark
