The Partnering ToolbookA helpful toolbook which offers a concise overview of the essential elements that make for effective partnering.
The Partnering Toolbook is a neatly arranged synthesis of the partnering process. Applicable to the public, private and civil society sectors, this guide illustrates the various roles played and options encountered in building partnerships. The Toolbook utilizes a bubble and box layout that clearly displays various typologies, characteristics and strengths of partnering. Box 1 neatly describes 12 phases in the partnering process. The chapters on “Managing the Partnering Process” and “Sustaining Partnerships” are particularly well done, providing a wide range of situational descriptions. There are also 'stand alone' tools woven within the text to help enable practitioners to develop effective partnerships. Overall, the document is a useful guide in visualizing the partnership dynamics involved in networking.
