We work with networks or partnerships between organizations, or with specific cross-organizational teams to develop new ways of working across distance, corporate and national cultures.
Typically this can involve:
- Preparing both parties (for example, in a move to outsourcing or offshoring) for the people management challenges they are likely to face in the transition and in managing future relationships remotely
- Building and strengthening virtual teams with members from two or more companies that need to cooperate to deliver a result
- Identifying and resolving specific relationship issues between two or more organizations, such as corporate cultural differences or different ways of working
- Helping build a more open corporate culture that other organizations find easier to cooperate with
Many organizations spend tens, even hundreds, of millions on common Information Systems to connect themselves with their customers and supply chain partners. As this form of cooperation becomes more common, it is equally important to build the skills and way of working that enables complex relationships with external partners to succeed.
Our “working with external partners” programs are tailored to your precise mix of challenges, cultures and any constraints you face. We have existing training modules and experience in these areas, and can quickly tailor a program that deals with your specific situation.
In addition to our bespoke programs we have packaged up our most popular virtual, matrix and agile/digital content into bite sized 90 minute modules available face to face or virtually. Get details on these modules and learning paths here
