Part 4: From Strategy to Implementation - Launching and Managing Individual Partnerships
International higher education partnerships are increasing in number, and expanding in the goals they address and forms they take. This four-part series explores the nature and practice of international partnerships, and the institutional planning and support necessary for their success.
With a signed partnership agreement as a starting point, this installment explores how to launch a new international partnership, and ensure that it reaches its full potential. The nine step process presented will help partnership managers establish a foundation for collaboration, navigate key decision points in the partnership lifecycle, and promote a robust relationship that adapts to changing needs and expectations.
