Collaborative Intelligence: Practical Tools & Best Practices for Teams

Keeping an eye on optimizing alliance results.

Thursday, February 22, 2024
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (EST)

Lynda McDermott, CA-AM

Ongoing research of successful alliance teams sites the fact they leverage the collective knowledge, skills, and experiences to innovate new solutions for current and anticipated future challenges.  Further, they have an urgency to understand and apply collaborative partnering competencies that value diverse perspectives and encourage a collaborative and unifying mindset among all stakeholders.

Alliance professionals are faced with trying to optimize their partnering effectiveness while navigating increasingly unpredictable economic market development, socio-cultural, and technological changes. It is critical that professionals continue to evolve their strategic partnering capability to include Collaborative Intelligence (CI). Embracing CI allows alliance professionals to lead and influence complex alliance ecosystems and drive a solid shared value proposition across an organization.

Webinar attendees will:

  • Gain an understanding of Collaborative Intelligence (CI): its core principles, its benefits for alliance teams, and best practices that apply to alliance management
  • Learn how to map an alliance team’s “thinking styles” and identify potential gaps in a team’s CI capabilities
  • Assess a specific alliance team’s CI capabilities and opportunities to enhance their alliance team’s capacity for alliance collaborative partnering
  • Gain a useful appreciation of the potential obstacles for alliance teams to successfully adopt CI strategies
  • Develop an action plan for introducing CI tools and best practices to their alliance teams

Pre-webinar Registrant Survey
To ensure there is the opportunity to apply learnings from this webinar, registrants will be asked to complete a pre-webinar benchmark assessment on how well they believe their alliance teams demonstrate Collaborative Intelligence (CI) best practices.  At the end of the webinar participants will walk away with a specific action plan for improving one or more of their alliance team’s Collaborative Intelligence (CI) practices that should lead to improving the alliance team’s performance.
