Relational Coordination Collaborative

Roundtable Program

Roundtable Logo

To solve the challenges we face today, multi-level systems change is needed more than ever. At every level of our systems, however, relationships are broken and in need of rebuilding. How can we “flip the narrative” to see our differences as valuable resources for problem solving? How can we leverage the rich information offered by our differences to find systemic solutions and achieve desired outcomes for all participants? What role does leadership play in bridging across these differences?

Relational Mapping is a facilitation tool that has emerged to support the practice of Relational Coordination.  It provides a powerful opportunity for colleagues to identify the multiple interdependendent stakeholders who are involved in a particular context, and to visualize the strength of relational coordination among them using color-coded network graphs.  Relational Mapping is typically carried out through conversations in groups ranging from 2 to 10, either physically using sheets of paper and markers around a table, or virtually using electronic templates over zoom. 

In this workshop you will work in groups to create relational maps, guided by four knowledgeable facilitators, then debrief your learning. You will take with you a template for doing Relational Mapping on your own.  You will also take away insights into the different ways to carry out Relational Mapping in the context of process improvement, organizational change and/or community change, based on case examples, with or without the Relational Coordination Survey as a follow-up for  more detailed and inclusive maps.

Social System Mapping and the Relational Model of Organizational Change: Broadening Inquiry (Classroom 275)

Presenter: Jim Best, Independent Consultant

Jim Best

As scholars and practitioners of complex adaptive social system change we use a variety of ways to detect entity and interaction characteristics and their emergent patterns. We focus a multi-level system lens on the aspects of system transformation that our theories of change (ToCs) lead us to believe are significant. In this work we share as part of the Relational Coordination Collaborative community, the Relational Model of Organizational Change (RMOC)  guides our inquiry. We use the Relational Coordination Survey at the inter-role level to detect the ultimate impacts of our relational, structural, and work process interventions. We make sense of them using the RC Survey maps. 

What is difficult to see in the role-role RC Survey maps are the actual relationships between people that condition their attitudes about different roles and link them to the changes that we see at the role-role level.  We often use personal and group interviews to make that richness more visible. On the other hand, a Social System Map (SSM) – a visual representation of people-to-people and people-to-role connections – make those relationships and relationship structures visible in a way that is not possible otherwise. A dual-level person-and-role map with their relationships (person-person, person-role) is built from participant survey responses about themselves and their relationships with each other, in real time. The role-role relationships are visualized in the usual way simply using the data collected from the RC Survey. The person-person and person-role level survey questions are created to  allow the SSM “spotlight” to make visible the relationships that the scholar-practitioner and participant community feel are most relevant to their ToC at the intervention level. That ToC can be centered around the Relational Model of Organizational Change (structural, relational, work process interventions) and/or delve more granularly into specific aspects of the scholar-practitioner’s particular ToCs, perhaps augmenting the Relational Model of Organizational Change.

Importantly, the act of collective sensemaking is in itself a transformative activity at the personal and collective levels that can augment the systemic (relational, structural, work in progress) interventions.  Working with an SSM tends to shift the focus from individuals to the relationships between individuals. The SSM is designed to be dynamically updated as the participants’ relationships, attitudes, and activities evolve during particular interventions. This visible evolution itself becomes an opportunity for sensemaking. Time tagging the responses allows a T0 to T1 comparison relative to an intervention.

This presentation will illustrate how the SSM theory of transformation, as a process and tool, can support the scholar-practitioner’s use of the Relational Model of Organizational Change. A hypothetical dual-level map with multiple views will be demonstrated. 

The Power of Building High Quality Career Connections in a Hybrid Working World (Classroom 285)

Presenter: Rebecca Otis Leder, Opportunities Knock

Rebecca LedererAfter conducting 6 years of research, including that of Dr. Jane Dutton and Dr. Monica Worline from the University of Michigan's Center for Positive Organizations, co-authors of 'Awakening Compassion at Work', and first-hand interviews with individuals who built a school, developed global non-profits to combat hunger and create an artist community for those touched by cancer, a financial advisor who went the extra mile to support his clients, a corporate leader who found a way to pitch a new idea at a global corporation that has touched hundreds of thousands of lives, The Knock Method was designed and developed by Rebecca Otis Leder. Rebecca is the bestselling author of KNOCK: How to Open Doors and Build Career Relationships that Matter. Her five-step methodology unlocks the power of collective impact through relational coordination, demonstrating prosocial behavior and "other-centeredness", helping career growers (those developing their careers and emerging/growing in leadership), career builders (students, graduates, and entrepreneurs), and career changers (those who have been a part of "The Great Resignation" and those seeking to make a meaningful career change), build High Quality Connections in their careers.

Rebecca put this methodology into practice when she led a cross-functional team at Salesforce, bringing together teams who seldom worked closely together to develop new digital learning tools that helped 200K+ customers learn professional skills at work. Over 1,000 students and professionals have been trained in The Knock Method, in partnership with Aon, Amazon, Salesforce, UW-Madison TAMID, UT Austin McCombs AMA Chapter, and non-profits and workforce development organizations, Year Up, and JewishColorado. The methodology and book have been recognized by FastCompany, Inc. Magazine, NPR, and PBS, and news stations across the country.

In this session, Rebecca will lead a group through an interactive workshop to experience The Knock Method framework, build deeper connections with session participants to grow their professional network, and identify strategies to put into practice in daily work as you build meaningful careers through the power of mutually-beneficial, long-term, relational coordination. She will highlight real-world stories about how she "unlocked" doors among internal teams at Salesforce to achieve relational coordination that made a larger collective impact than would have been possible had the teams acted alone.

Evaluating the Impact of Relational Coordination Change (Classroom 205)

Jen Perloff, Heba Ali, Jody Hoffer Gittell


Facilitators: Jennifer Perloff, Heba Naim Ali & Jody Hoffer Gittell, The Heller School, Brandeis University; Relational Coordination Analytics

Increasingly people are using the Relational Coordination Survey as a tool for both facilitating change and evaluating change.  The Relational Coordination Survey is well-suited to play this dual purpose due to 1) its credibility and face validity with practitioners, and 2) its validity as a measurable construct for researchers.  In this workshop, three experts in RC measurement and evaluation design will share several diverse case examples of using this tool to inform the change process and to evaluate the change process over time, informed by principles of Participatory Action Research.  Examples will be in the context of healthcare, construction projects, and partnering with communities to address the social determinants of health.

You will take away with you a powerpoint describing four designs: 1) intervention with pattern matching design, 2) longitudinal design, 3) participatory action research and 4) randomized control trial.
