In Finding Allies, Building Alliances, Governor Mike Leavitt and co-author Rich McKeown introduce the eight elements required for a collaborative network to succeed.
The book explores each of the elements in depth, discussing why these particular eight elements matter most, and how one can integrate them into an alliance.
In addition, readers will find stories illustrating each element, most drawn from Governor Leavitt’s experiences with various alliances, networks and other collaborative groups.
While a few of the stories have been adjusted to protect the privacy of the parties involved, many provide the names of the organizations and the individuals who guided them.
Readers will find a rich reservoir of real world experience from both the public and private sector.
Additionally, the collaborations featured in the book run the gamut from large, ongoing global alliances to smaller networks designed to solve a short-term problem.
Finding Allies, Building Alliances is set for release in September 2013.
