In a world of increasing connectivity and change effective Partnerships are the key component of building a successful business. Companies that prosper fixate on doing only what they are excellent at - allowing others to deliver everything else. Building successful partnerships is a mix of diplomacy and negotiation made more complex by cultural and commercial differences. How do you ensure effective product, project and business delivery in a world of partnership and cultural challenge? How can you maximise the chance of success through effective partnerships?
Over the last twenty years Mark Mulcahey has developed and nurtured many complex partnerships for companies as diverse as Walt Disney and Samsung in markets from the US to China to India and Japan. Mark will draw on this experience to try to provide some guidance and answers. Building on his previous lecture on the 22nd October Mark will talk about the critical importance of new forms of social communication in delivering effective partnerships.
