Session 105
Improving the Partnering Capability: From Self-Assessment to Action

Doctors have a standard assessment to check the health of patient. A mechanic has a standard assessment to check the 'health' of our car. Why is it that Alliance Managers do not have a standard assessment they can use to check the health of their organizations ability to partner? Well no need to wonder why anymore!

The Association of Strategic Alliance Professionals in collaboration with New Information Paradigms are proud to announce the Partner Capability Assessment Platform (PCAP) which has been derived from international standards for business collaboration:

Come join us in this highly interactive workshop as we learn about the PCAP: Individual, Team, and Enterprise. In particular, this workshop will provide hands-on experience for Partnering Professionals by using the PCAP - Individual License – which is free for any individual – to help diagnose their organization's ability to partner. Attendees will then employ the Plan, Do, Check, Act process to collaboratively derive an action plan for an identified area for improvement as indicated by the PCAP.

Note: This session is only for those attendees that are serious about improving their organization's ability to partner!
