About Us

Mission - Foster the development of relational coordination theory, research and practice.

Vision - Transform relationships toward shared goals, shared knowledge, and mutual respect.

Strategy - Accomplish this mission through community building, partnerships, training, certification, grant-funded research, publications and public engagement.

Relational coordination is communicating and relating for the purpose of task integration - a powerful driver of performance when work is interdependent, uncertain and time constrained. Based at Brandeis University’s Heller School for Social Policy and Management, the RCRC connects researchers and practitioners around the world to develop and test new models of change.

We explore how these changes impact critical performance outcomes including quality, safety, efficiency, engagement, well-being, learning and innovation. Using the RC Survey offered by Relational Coordination Analytics, a valid and reliable measurement tool, you can gain new insight into the relational dynamics that exist among individuals, among workgroups and among organizations - and begin to transform them.
