The Strategic Partnering Handbook
Santrauka: The Strategic Partnering Handbookis an internationally renowned how-to guide for creating successful partnerships and alliances both within and across borders. While previous editions have all been top sellers, today's rapidly changing global business environment requires a new edition featuring revised strategies coupled with current case studies and examples. Lendrum argues that in order for businesses to grow and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage, they must develop quality relationships between customers and suppliers - both within and outside the organisation. To illustrate this point he draws on fresh case studies and research to present the many facets of modern strategic partnering.
