This paper from the Community Center for Education Results details the second phase of the Road Map Project and is valuable to understand the design, process, and implementation of a collective impact initiative. Having established a common goal and shared metrics in the first phase, stakeholders came together from across the region to organize and collaborate to reach the overarching goal of doubling the number of students in King County and South Seattle who are on track to graduate from college or earn a career credential by 2020.

Introduction
The Road Map Project transitions from “Building the Road Map” to “Organizing for Action”.
December 2010 marked an important transition for the Road Map Project – from “Building the Road Map” to “Organizing for Action”. The Road Map Project was officially launched at a regional conference on December 9, 2010. Leading up to the public launch, dozens of education and civic leaders signed on to endorse the common goal of the Road Map Project to double the number of students in the region who are on-track to earn a college degree or career credential, and to close achievement gaps by the year 2020. With a common goal and shared metrics established in Phase I, the Project then transitioned into Phase II of the work: determining how to work together to achieve the Road Map’s ambitious 2020 goals.
