The ASBC’s of
Government Contracting: What is the State of Partnerships?
How important are partnerships to your government sector business strategy?
Join The ASBC's Business-to-Government (B2G) Intelligence Committee as we welcome INPUT Principal Analyst, Deniece Peterson and Accela Consulting Senior Partner, Marc Zoellner in a discussion intended to address the significant role partnerships play in the achievement of goals and objectives for small, medium and large companies.
In a July 2007 study entitled "Lead, Follow, or Join Forces: Strategic Teaming in a Competitive Federal Market," INPUT surmised that:"In today's federal contracting environment, teaming with other companies in the pursuit of opportunities has become a necessary activity. Industry leaders are well aware that teaming provides a variety of benefits: filling gaps in technology capabilities or subject matter expertise, socio-economic requirements, market expansion, or other business-or market-specific motivators." The report peers into the different forms of partner relationships (opportunity-based teaming arrangements, Joint Ventures, multi-opportunity relationships, channel programs, etc.), the role of leadership in strategic thinking, what makes effective partnerships and critical success factors for strategic teaming.
This discussion will also highlight some of the findings from INPUT's February 2009 research report "What Integrators Look for in a Teaming Partner" which reviewed the frequency with which integrators find new partners and the factors used to select subcontractor partners, who makes decisions regarding subcontractors and more.
This event is intended for business leaders from small, medium and large companies doing business in the government sector. Space is limited.
Registration Fee: 45.00/Members and 55.00/Not-Yet Members.
A Continental Breakfast will be served. The ASBC Refund Policy is in effect.
