A great variety of collaborative and partnership models

 

Written by Irena Rezec  |  October 16, 2016

 

Companies face the issue or search for suitable ways to reach their goals, strategies and visions on a daily basis. Collaborative business models and networking/partnering/clustering approaches are without a doubt one of the strategies that can be used in various cases for various purposes. However, a company usually does not possess such knowledge on the appropriate networking/partnering/clustering form or later the implementation. Governmental support usually refers either to clusters or technological platforms, while the other forms are practically not promoted. This is appropriate in certain cases, but from the viewpoint of consultants and companies, this is at the same time also a “trap”, as especially small and medium-sized companies do not decide at the same time or only also for other types of collaborative and networking/partnering/clustering models, which might be even more appropriate for their own cases. I believe that the appropriate form or perhaps more forms of collaborative and networking/partnering/clustering approaches at the same time, as well as management adapted to this has a truly important influence on the development or even competitiveness of an individual company or a group of connected companies.
