Small Business Insights: Sustainable Collaboration – Part 1

May 6, 2015 by Bonnie D. Graham 0

The buzz: Partners. 

Small businesses today must deftly manage business partnerships without risking IP, valued talent, or worse – in a business milieu where the lines can quickly blur between cooperation and competition. And in this networked economy, supply chains can shift and transform seamlessly.

Many critical questions arise:

  • What can a small business owner do to shore-up enough protection to avoid getting squeezed out?
  • How often should they re-examine their business agreements?
  • What are the red flags that signal it’s time to start looking for a new business partner?

The experts speak.

Susan Wilson Solovic, ‘THE Small Business Expert’: “Failure is the key to entrepreneurial success.  If you aren’t failing, you aren’t doing.”

Morgan Browne, IIS Group: “Partnerships are always a gamble – but what choice do we have?”

Carrie Maslen, SAP: “I believe the best business policy is the golden rule … this is a small interconnected world, and what goes around comes around.”
