How Organisations Connect
Inter-organisational activity, whether public and private sector joint enterprises, university and industry partnerships or businesses pooling their resources for a common aim, can have numerous benefits. A successful collaboration can make markets operate more efficiently, help resolve disputes and result in innovative research and product development. Yet such activity also has many pitfalls and can be seen as collusive and self-serving.
How Organisations Connect draws on the expertise of observers from a range of disciplines to offer valuable insights into what makes partnerships work. Through the analysis of diverse case studies, using economic theory, historical perspectives and contemporary evidence, the contributors provide practical advice that will help organisations connect, and communicate, effectively.
