A table comparing and contrasting the “three Cs” of ways of working together: cooperation, coordination and collaboration. Includes the essential elements of vision and relationships; structure, responsibility and communication; authority and accountability; and resources and rewards in each of the three.

Table adapted from Collaboration: What Makes It Work (Mattessich et al., 2001, p. 61) and the works of M. Blank, S. Kagan, A. Melaville, and K. Ray.
