Putting together a good partnership is probably the most important thing you can do for your project. Having the right partners and building good working relationships with them are the foundations of a successful project.
A strong partnership will benefit your project throughout its life. A good partner will:
- Bring the right kind of skills and expertise to the project.
- Be committed to the project, including to completing it.
- Be reliable and help deliver the project on time.
