Partnering builds the people side of projects. Partnered projects offer substantial improvements in safety, schedule, quality, and financial management. Why? Simply put, partnering provides a common platform to unite, sustain, and improve how people work together toward a shared goal.
Most people know the opposite of partnering: bickering, schedule slippage, wasteful rework, cost overruns, legal hassles, and perhaps most painful, resenting a project rather than feeling proud of one’s work. No one likes a job that is continually stressful and demoralizing.
