Do I need partners to do what I want to do?
Would I be a good partner?
NO, if your organisation is unsure it can meet its obligations, or is unwilling to invest time and effort in understanding partners
if your involvement depends too heavily on the enthusiasm of just a few individuals.
But YES, if:
- you are prepared to treat your partners as you would your customers - listen to their needs, respect their concerns and honour the commitments you make to them
- you secure the backing of your senior management, brief them regularly and allocate the right staff and resources to the project.
Is consortium working manageable?
