Building partnerships

How can it help me?

Partnerships give you access to a wider pool of knowledge and resources, but building the right kind of relationship can be tricky and time-consuming. This worksheet helps you map the partnership-building process step by step, and bring into focus any particular challenges.

How do I use it?

  • Each box represents a different stage of a typical partnership. They are guidelines rather than rules, but each stage is important for achieving a balanced, successful partnership.
  • Identify your current stage and the stage you want to reach.
  • Move clockwise along the map from your current position to your desired one. Fill in each box on the way with an outline of your plan for that stage.
