This course is designed for business professionals who are interested in understanding the foundational components of developing long-term strategic partnerships with complementary organizations. This course explores the essential terms, concepts, processes, and strategies that leaders can utilize to generate profit growth through successful partnerships. The bulk of the content is focused on pre-contract signature activities and the successful practices that leaders should know and implement. At the successful completion of this course, participants will have a newly found appreciation for the value that partnerships can bring to organizations as well as understanding the major contributors to long-term partnership success.
