Partnering For Success

PARTNERING for construction projects yields many benefits. On time completion, dollar savings, increased safety, no litigation, and improved relationships are all experienced as a result of PARTNERING.

PARTNERING is a new paradigm of relations with emphasis on up-front team building, clear definition of common objectives, synchronized systems for rapid resolution, and frequent, joint evaluation of partnership effectiveness.

PARTNERING establishes a commitment for the purpose of achieving specific objectives by maximizing the effectiveness of each participant and available resources.

PARTNERING begins with a session (retreat) which establishes a Charter and guidelines for effective communication. Regular follow-up activities have ensured success of projects. A monthly newsletter clarifies communication.

PARTNERING is a structured process that fosters trust, respect and teamwork. The PARTNERING process, when applied sincerely promotes the team concept. Of course in the real world, PARTNERING is not for everyone, but it is for those who still believe in respect, quality, trust, and cooperation.

We have conducted PARTNERING programs with private industry, state, federal and governmental organizations.
