Collaboration 2.0: Building on Success – How to Set Up Successful Internal and External Alliances
June 28, 2017 @ 11:00 pmUSD145
No one ever has enough people to get everything done. Plus there are certain skills, experience, or connections that are required to do the job right. But, there’s never enough money or time. The answer: internal or external collaboration and alliances. You can set up and manage successful internal and external alliances and reduce the potential of a 60% failure rate common to most alliances. The good news is that when they are done correctly, they can improve your bottom line more than 15%.
Successful collaborations have five characteristics:
- A plan and a process that goes beyond a handshake or directive
- Carefully chosen allies who also meet specific cultural organization criteria as well
- Managed by those with the understanding, desire, and willingness to spend the time alliances require on top of other duties and responsibilities
- Have top-level support from all parties not just the one seeking the alliance
- A balanced approach to growth
To be successful, you have to be willing to rethink alliances you have or tried before and go beyond the standard approach in order to get to Collaborative Alliances 2.0.
Why should you Attend: Alliances and collaboration sound good -extra hands and minds to get things done. But, if they are not managed the right way, they can be a huge waste of time or even an embarrassment. Don’t let that happen to you or your company or organization. Turn Alliance Collaboration into Management Gold and build on your success.
