1 + 1 = 3:
to Collaborate Successfully with other Consultants
IMC Philly on May 10, 2013 for another Breakfast Buzz Session as Tom Casey, CMC
leads us in a lively discussion on the topic:
"1 + 1 = 3: How to
Collaborate Successfully with other Consultants”.
consultants and small consulting firms have long used collaboration as an
effective alternative to hiring in order to staff client projects. Utilizing the skills and talents of an outside
resource can add depth and breadth to your firm’s service offerings, as well as
providing added value for your client. Using
additional resources and skill sets can also dramatically improve your revenues.
all such "marriages” are successful.
Choosing the wrong partner can be damaging to both your project and your
firm’s professional reputation. Allying
with a firm whose goals are not in line with yours can result in a very rocky
relationship, and a waste of your valuable time.

experienced colleagues and peers:
