Partnership Success Amidst the Pandemic
Business partnerships are challenging to say the least, with two distinctly different companies trying to come together to solve a single problem, whether that is revenue growth, product expansion or even brand buy-in. But during a pandemic where survival strategies are overriding existing plans and resources are severely constrained, keeping your strategic alliances and partnerships on track is even more challenging. Keeping the two separate companies’ priorities aligned and focused on a common mission amidst the pandemic is of serious concern to many business leaders today.
In this Webinar:
Afterburner CEO, Joel “Thor” Neeb and World Wide Technology President, Joe Koenig, shared insights from companies who re-alignined their strategic alliances with new-found rigor to ensure revenue expectations remained intact and on track during 2020.
Thor demonstrated how our methodology and presence has helped and continues to help companies by providing a central governing authority for their partnership objectives, create an accountability culture across company lines, establish a rapid execution rhythm, and help both companies create a clear and compelling value exchange.
