    A significant number of partnerships fail. By going beyond standard practices to de-risk for success pre- and post-partnering, firms can avoid reduced revenue, elevated costs and brand damage due to failed alliances and partnerships. This session will include how to make a go or no go decision plus engagement on an ongoing basis, including periodic checks on milestones and soft targets such as engagement level, communication effectiveness, and others.
    Learning Objective : State at least three common causes of partnership failure; Explain hard and soft (such as cultural) due diligence; Describe at least three activities or strategies a sponsor or vendor may use to de-risk a partnership/alliance.
