About the course

This highly interactive Oxford seminar will clearly demonstrate the unique formations, rationales, and execution of world-class strategic partnerships, joint ventures, and consortium alliances.

It will help team leaders learn skills and techniques to both approach and develop new potential alliances, as well as respond to outside inquiries from other firms and organizations about engaging in partnerships, joint ventures, or consortium – covering all facets of such deals, including financial, technological, structural, legal, and managerial.

The seminar will examine the latest ways to engage in high-level alliance dialogues aimed at opening new markets, accessing new capital sources, tapping into new talent, and leveraging enhanced technologies - helping turn average team leaders into initiators and closers of new business development opportunities.
