Session 104
Mapping a TE-AM Road for Successful Alliances

Digitalization, public/private expansion, and complex multi-partner and ecosystem networks who are changing the rules continue to push new types of cross-industry partnerships. As this movement continues to develop one might ask: Are my team's current alliance best practices future proof? Should my alliance team acquire new skills? What about my organization, are we ready to manage partnerships within our complex ecosystems?

Discover how ASAP's newly launched in-company TE-AM training can help you to explore leading best practices to strengthen your organization's capabilities to expand and evaluate its alliance portfolio into new areas of value creation. The workshop will provide an overview of the extended offering, complete with live demonstration of experiential tools and case studies.
