This paper seeks to understand and generate meaning from an emergent way of organising - transformational collaboration. Integral Theory, Spiral Dynamics and Spiritual Capital/Intelligence theories are used to inform the construct 'transformation'. The theory of Change Collaboration is used to inform the construct 'collaboration'. These theories are interwoven, and extrapolated from, for the specific purpose of informing a theory of transformational collaboration. Two empirical studies are also used to inform the construct 'transformational collaboration' - the Mareeba Dimbulah Irrigation Area Community Response Group Collaboration Project and the Cairns Human Services Collaboration Project. The findings of these studies are synthesised with the informing theories to provide a snapshot of an emerging grounded theory of transformational collaboration. The conceptual framework and individual components of this theory are described.
