Today's leaders face continued pressure to sustain competitive advantage while also pursuing new initiatives. Options for growth have always included innovation, consolidation, and geographical expansion, or diversifying into new businesses. However, with disruptive shifts in the external and competitive environment, the growth of technology-based industries, the rise of activist investors, and the blurring of industry boundaries, companies need to increasingly look at strategic partnerships as their primary growth mode.
Those partnerships, however, are easier said than created. Many fail to achieve the desired growth objectives, even destroying value instead of creating it. In Driving Growth through Strategic Partnerships, participants will learn how to enhance their capabilities for both identifying the best partnering opportunities and designing and managing them in ways that create maximum value for all partners.
