We’re thrilled to be joining the blogosphere with this launch of Business Partnership Central. As the name implies, we will strive to make Business Partnership Central a central repository for hot tips, latest news, valuable insights, and winning strategies on partnering relationships.
Yes, Business Partnership Central will cover many of the ins and outs of working with a business partner — whether they’re active or passive (that’s ownership, not temperament!). But there’s also lots to be gleaned from the ways that companies are increasingly “partnering” with each other. If, as 17th century poet John Donne noted, “no man is an island,” then the same holds true for small business today. No business can grow solely on its own. At some point it will need “partners” — whether outside vendors, consultant-collaborators, or strategic alliance partners.
Through your comments, we invite you to become partners with us in exploring the world of collaboration!
