Today’s complex world requires leaders to help their organizations to partner with outside organizations, and to mobilize inter-organizational networks to achieve common objectives. Forming such partnerships and networks with outside organizations over which one has no authority is challenging, however. As a leader, you must therefore be able to recognize the major barriers to forming and maintaining effective partnerships and networks, and develop partnering skills for overcoming them. This course presents a framework for forming and managing effective inter-organizational relationships, and helps participants to develop their partnering skills.

As a result, Olin faculty are prepared to deliver their sessions either live, or virtually, as regulations and circumstances permit. If conditions prohibit face-to-face coursework, we will switch affected seminars to virtual delivery via the Zoom platform.
