Everybody says partnering with other
organizations is the way to go
But most partnerships fail and the ones
that work are difficult to maintain
You have had some level of success
with partnerships in the past
You want to build on that experience
and raise your success rate
Follow the 15 time-tested principles for
effective partnerships
1: Effective collaborative partnerships
are driven by an energizing vision
2: Trust, openness, and mutual concern
are vital ingredients
3: Durable partnerships need a
committed facilitator
4: Partnerships are a process,
not an event
5: Successful partnership have limited,
achievable objectives…in the beginning
6: Effective partnerships require
substantial, ongoing prayer
7: A high level of participation and
ownership is vital
8: Start by identifying priority felt needs
among the people being served
9: Healthy partnerships have a
champion inside every organization
10: Growing partnerships serve at least
four constituencies
11: Strong partnerships are made up of
partners with their own clear identities
12: Strong partnerships acknowledge,
even celebrate the differences
13: Effective partnerships don’t
come free
14: Substantial partnerships are even
more challenging to maintain than start
15: Healthy partnerships expect
problems and deal proactively
Follow the 15 time-tested principles for
effective partnerships
Your potential for a successful
partnership will increase dramatically
