Abstract

This book investigates the problems of effectively managing partnerships between organizations in the private, public and not for profit sectors, and highlights many of the pitfalls of an uncritical and quick fix approach to collaboration. It provides a conceptual framework that can be used to identify possible problems and to find solutions that can enable collaborative ventures to succeed. This framework enables academics, students and practising managers to assess and to devise solutions to the management problems connected to collaborative ventures.
