Partnering with Nonprofits to Confront a Crisis (Ballesteros and Gatignon)

The private sector cannot wait and see until the COVID-19 storm is over. They need to act, and be part of the solution.

However, in doing so, firms should consider the unique abilities of the nonprofit sector in times of disaster and crises.

If partnering holds the promise of all things good, why do partnerships and alliances fail so often? Sandy Jap will explore the dark side of partnering relationships:  why “friends” become “enemies” over time, with research insights and case studies from Samsung/Google, Nike/Footlocker and more. Most importantly, she will offer specific recommendations for avoiding problems, revitalizing weakening partnerships, and recognizing when a partnership can’t be saved.
