Leads - Fred or Ginger?
When You're Through Changing You're Through!
Doing more with less Without The Stress
To investigate the potential for synergy in the formation
of partnerships between organisations which presently do
business together. Also suitable for those interested in
forming such partnerships.
The motivation for partnerships may be pragmatic, the desire
for more fulfilling work, or simply for the enjoyment of
the dynamic experience.
This event is a natural progression from Learning Organisations
and Corporate Visioning. It seeks to expand the business
community horizon for the prospective partnership. An equally
important aim is the optimisation of profits and maximisation
of corporate and individual learning.
Traditional mergers are based upon the need for security
and power, which is self-defeating: eg 1960's conglomerates.
In contrast, strategic partnerships can be temporary, and
are concerned with the identification of untapped resources
which may even create a new market or product for the partnership.
They can be established between suppliers, producers, or
customers, and may even involve otherwise potential competitors.
The culture is built as the partnership grows, and is based
upon shared values and similar vision.
Prior to the event, the corporate team within each organisation
complete a questionnaire to establish their readiness for
partnership. Ideally, they will also have exchanged vision
statements and found them to be broadly compatible. The
technical opportunities for partnership are explored in
general terms, to be further investigated at a later date.
The event itself gives an indication of the potential for
the human resource element of the partnership.
The partnership situation lends itself to further development
by both organisations working together using an Action Centred
Learning approach involving both businesses.
This approach may also be used to implement the finer details
of how the partnership will work "on the job",
by considering such questions as resources, costs, flexibility,
expanded markets etc.
