ICPS developed a conceptual framework for collaborative approaches and integrated service delivery, and worked with the Department to develop these concepts within the organisation. This included staff forums and a 'world cafe' with central district principals. A small qualitative research project was undertaken to gather the views of people who worked collaboratively and to identify good practice examples.
