J.P. Putnam's Sons, 1997 - Business & Economics - 394 pages
As the small-business arena becomes increasingly competitive, self-employed individuals and small companies are finding collaboration to be a practical solution to the challenges they face every day. But how do you go about forming the right alliances for your business? Teaming Up has the answers to this and other questions, offering valuable advice on how to find the appropriate people to join forces with, become more competitive, and get more clients. Collaboration comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, and this book covers them all, from networking to joint ventures to virtual organizations. Based on extensive research, interviews, and surveys, Teaming Up deals with issues that other small-business books do not address - namely, the social, psychological, and legal aspects of working with others. The Edwardses have written a detailed trouble-shooting guide that explores win-win conflict resolution, even showing how to determine when dissolving your partnership is advisable. Whether collaboration is a new option or you already work with others, Teaming Up is an essential resource for your small or home-based business.
