Partnerships have evolved among government, education, non-profit, and for-profit organizations over many years to improve effectiveness, and increase financial efficiencies. The term partnership has evolved to mean agreements, cooperative ventures, memorandums of understanding (or agreements), joint ventures, collaborations, coalitions, volunteer efforts, and other working arrangements.
Partnerships with the Institute share labor, money, information, and services where missions align between the partners. They require a level of intimacy, trust, and flexibility between the partners that includes:
- Active, open participation and a recognition that there is a shared expertise between the partners.
- All the parties are contributing a variety of resources and expertise, and straightforward collaboration.
- Common, or at least compatible, goals to advance the organization’s capability, and the profession.
