Developing Strategic Partnerships, Joint Ventures, and Consortia

Overview:

Introduction:

This Developing Strategic Partnerships, Joint Ventures, and Consortia training seminar focus on how to proactively develop all the key components for either a Strategic Partnership [SP], Joint Venture [JV], or Consortium – completing a formal scenario analysis of each potential opportunity with a detailed plan for execution. When firms/organizations need to develop new functional capabilities to stay competitive, these require time, talent, and capital. Access to these resources can be achieved through an SP, JV, or Consortium with those who already have these requisite functionalities. Learn the comprehensive development and analysis process-flow and apply these to contemporary firms in several leading industries. Then do the same for your own firm/organization – while developing a detailed proactive rubric to screen and approach potential allies, negotiate the key contractual terms, lead the execution/launch, and monitor-assess an SP, JV, or Consortium.
