Today’s partnering capability encompasses much more than traditional channels or licensing agreements. To be successful, partners must be integrated into all aspects of strategy, operations, and execution. Companies must be able to collaborate effectively internally as well as externally. That requires certain structure, skills and behaviors, governance and measurement. Most companies aren’t ready for this degree of extreme collaboration and partnering. Executives realize they must transform—and in a hurry.
Together with our strategic partner, Alliancesphere a professional services firm with expertise in collaborative execution, we’ve created SMART Partnering™—an end-to-end methodology for integrating collaboration and partnering throughout an enterprise. Without this next-generation capability, companies will not realize the value of digital business transformation and be full participants in the ecosystem economy.
Together, The Rhythm of Business and Alliancesphere are guiding technology leaders to develop next-generation partnering capability; ideating, creating, and taking to market the technically advanced solutions today’s customer demands. Some of the companies we’ve worked with include:
– VP, Business Development & Ventures
– General Manager, Alliances & Partnerships
– EVP and GM, Global Alliances and Partnerships
