Challenges of Alliances for the Project Manager

15th - 16th October 2019 The Stones Hotel, Salisbury, United Kingdom

Alliances and other partnerships, such as outsourcing to CROs and CMOs, are fundamental to our sector, yet frequently cause problems for project managers and the functional project representatives that work on joint teams. All start out with best intentions but most fail to achieve all the objectives established at the outset. Common problems are misunderstandings between partners about mutual commitments and obligations; inadequate governance, leading to delayed resolution of escalated problems; different ways of working in partnered organisations, leading to disconnects about who makes decisions; mismatches in the use of systems and communication tools. As a result, the extended project grouping feels anything but 'one team', which it ideally should if complex and difficult projects are to be managed efficiently. This meeting focuses on partnerships from the project manager’s point of view and will feature recognised experts in partnership management sharing knowledge, as well as an opportunity to network with like-minded people and share your experiences and questions.
