Many complex problems have several different yet related causes and effects – with several organisations from different sectors trying to solve things individually. With many organisations having limited resources, forming partnerships is a good approach to not only increase capability, but also your reach. Partnerships help build a common understanding, and harness the knowledge which might be spread across various different perspectives.
Building partnerships takes a lot of effort from all those involved. They often take a considerable investment of time to build the high quality working relationships that underpin effective collaboration. The Building Partnerships Map breaks the process into steps, so you can anticipate difficulties and challenges ahead.
