The Partnering Intelligence
The need to partner has never been greater. Our information-based economy requires organizations to reach out and connect with as many sources of knowledge as possible. Following on the success of Stephen Dent's Partnering Intelligence, we now offer you an application guide to our proven step-by-step process to help businesses form internal or external partnerships that add value to their organizations.
The Fieldbook outlines from start to finish the process for creating smart partners. Part One provides the invaluable Partnering Quotient Assessment (PQ Assessment) to measure partnering intelligence and examines the essential Six Partnering Attributes™ in detail. The Stages of Partnership Development in Part Two focuses on ways the alliance can work together to accomplish the task it was formed to do. Cutting-edge exercises enlist the newest partnering technologies to accelerate movement through the Stages of Relationship Development.
Rich with practical tools and how-to techniques, The Partnering Intelligence Fieldbook features more than 100 self-assessments, questionnaires, checklists and examples, including sample agreements and contracts. All assessments are complete with scoring and interpretation guidelines for checking where you are on the path to becoming a smart partner.
