Tool – The Alliance Continuum

alliance continuum 1

In her recent workshop, Karen Ray shared The Alliance Continuum.   It’s an important tool as we commonly use the terms collaboration and alliance without checking to see if potential partners are using them the same way.

This handy one page includes the definitions of collaboration and alliance.   It also details the four types of alliances.
