Partnering is an essential human instinct. We partner because we feel that by aligning and combining our resources with others, we can achieve more than we ever could alone. That is why partnering is at the very heart of the Sustainable Development Goals and a driving force in disaster preparedness, resilience and humanitarian action.
But what is the alchemy of partnering that can create this extra value? How is it that aligning or combining resources and competencies can result in more than the sum-of-the-parts? And how can we measure this Collaborative Advantage’?
To date, partnership value creation has been poorly defined and understood, contributing to too many partnerships delivering sub-optimally or struggling to provide sufficient evidence of additional impact.
In our recent webinar, experienced practitioners from across the sectors discussed TPI’s new framework (developed with World Vision) and guidebook (with UNDESA) that allows systematic examination and maximisation of partnership value creation:
• the extra power intrinsic to partnership;
• the additional impact partnerships can deliver; and
• the value generated for all partners
For more information on TPI’s value framework and the collaborative advantage of partnerships, download the draft guidebook on maximising the value of partnerships.
