Partnering

partnering“Partnering” is a process where the parties, with the assistance of a facilitator, commit to establishing effective communications, building trust, and sustaining strategic relationships. The process is designed to promote an environment for teamwork, collaborative problem solving, and attaining common goals. Partnering is a continuous process of aligning organizations to achieve a mutual vision, reap economic benefits, improve working relationships, and prevent litigation.

Partnering has a proven record of achieving realistic and measurable benefits for all stakeholders. The most highly acclaimed benefits of partnering are on-time and within budget completion of projects. Other benefits of partnering are prevention of disputes, more innovative solutions to problems that arise, expeditious resolution of disputes, improved safety, and increased productivity. In addition, there are certain intangible benefits that include improved quality performance, customer satisfaction, enhanced business reputation, and a great working atmosphere.
