Constellations are created when someone brings forward a need or opportunity, someone agrees to take on a leadership role, and enough others join in to start and move the issue forward. Anyone can ignite a constellation. Most often they are triggered or led by the partners that are active in the Stewardship Group. The Stewardship Group ensures that Constellations advance the interests of the partnership and are consistent with the aims and plan of the group. Constellations run until they either die out organically or complete their mission.
