The Indiana Household Hazardous Waste Task Force: A Case Study 

By Mark W. Davis and Danielle M. Varda 
School of Public Affairs, University of Colorado at Denver.  


The purpose of this case is to demonstrate an example of collaboration and encourage students to identify factors that may contribute to successful collaboration.  This is looked at both from a start-up perspective and a sustained-program perspective.  Public managers will often find themselves in situations where a network and/or collaboration are called for.  In these cases traditional thinking in terms of top-down leadership or program implementation by a single agency are not appropriate.  This case is designed to present a real world example where multiple agencies, in the public sector, not-for-profit sector, and private sector all worked in a cross-sector collaborative fashion and solved a problem that none of them would likely have been able to solve as a single agency.
