#Partnerships are almost always described as a long-term, gradual process.
But if both organizations and their leadership commit and align, things can move at 10x speed 🚀 or even faster.
In my experience even fairly large programs could be launched fast if they become a strategic priority of both teams.
In Covid times companies moved to #cloud and started to use advanced tech >20x faster 🎯 then they previously estimated.
Therefore, it’s almost always a good idea to:
✔️ Figure out if your partnerships fit the top 3 priorities of both organizations
✔️ Challenge estimated timelines again and again
✔️ Support partnership teams who show (on path) clear ROIs or strategic value with resources to unlock their true potential.
💡 Because what’s also true about partnerships, is that when they start working, companies usually reap benefits for a very long time.
