Alliance Disruptive Forces Project
The Alliance for Children and Families’ Disruptive Forces project was launched in 2011 with the report, Disruptive Forces: Driving a Human Services Revolution. The report:
- Identifies six disruptive forces that may fundamentally change and transform the nonprofit human services sector
- Creates a vision for the sector during the next 3-5 years
- Highlights suggested actions to preserve quality services within the boundaries of anticipated fiscal and other challenges
The report continues to be the foundation for other aspects of the Disruptive Forces project, with additional program offerings, new member benefits, and resources planned for the future.
Current project components include:
- Report Executive Summary. Provides a succinct overview of the report.
- Full Report. Free to download as a PDF.
- Podcast. The Disruptive Forces podcast features Polina Makievsky, senior vice president of knowledge, leadership, and innovation of the Alliance, and Monica Modi Dalwadi, director at Baker Tilly. The two discuss key aspects of the report, why the it was developed, and how it can be a resource to the field.
- Audio from Report’s Release. The initial report was released at the Alliance and UNCA 2011 National Conference in Washington, D.C. Audio is available from the Oct. 17 opening keynote presentation and provides a high-level overview of the report.
