Maximising the value of
strategic partnerships

Partnering Excellence (PX) equips organisations to maximise the value of current and future strategic alliances.

Strategic partnering is an effective and essential growth strategy for many organisations. 85% of businesses credit alliances as being important or essential to their business’s success. In this evolving and fast-moving world, collaboration allows speed of delivery, innovation and greater customer access with a smaller investment than building, buying or joint venturing. 

Your alliances need to be delivered well to realise this value. Alliances are notoriously difficult to execute and have high reported failure rates. Value is often left on the table and there can be operational strain with challenging partnering. With support from PX your organisation can leverage and create effective Alliances that add value to your business. 

Partnering works. When it’s done well.

Our ‘why’ is to help organisations achieve more through effective partnering. ​We do this by offering specialist consulting services to organisations engaged in partnerships to help them achieve two key outcomes

  • Maximise the value of their partnerships
  • Create trusting and meaningful business relationships

At its core, partnerships are a set of complex human relationships between two or more organisations. They are unique and require specific strategies to create and maintain commercial alignment and people engagement.

PX has developed a methodology and approach that equips organisations to get the most from their partnerships. These services can be tailored to any organisation’s needs and include;

  • partner health checks,
  • internal capacity building,
  • reviewing tender performance or
  • execution support.
