About You

High-stakes objectives. Fewer resources. Tight windows of opportunity.
Whatever your game, we have the players and playbook to change it.

Your most pressing challenges are recurring themes in Alliancesphere's daily work with clients. Alliancesphere brings together a winning formula—the right people, process, and approach, every time—to help you confidently pursue game-changing outcomes.

Your company can't go it alone any more—partner is as essential as build or buy, and is increasingly the correct strategic choice to unleash innovation, transformation, and growth. However, if you're like most, your organization confronts a "collaborative execution gap"—the daunting disconnect between your increasingly ambitious collaboration plans and your ability to jointly implement them with partners to create value for customers. Successful collaborative execution requires new, holistic ways of thinking and doing business that integrate and optimize inside and outside the four walls of your organization.

Challenges Addressed

Alliancesphere helps you close your collaborative execution gap, tackling your toughest collaboration challenges while helping actively build, manage, and leverage your partner ecosystems, innovation networks, and other forms of collaboration. What challenges keep you up at night?

OUR BEST-LAID PLANS OFTEN GO ASTRAY. HOW DO WE BUILD AN ALLIANCE STRATEGY WE CAN ACTUALLY EXECUTE?
Alliancesphere's pragmatic strategists build a bridge from the executive suite to the front lines, where alliances and other business collaborations ultimately succeed or fail. We help our clients shape successful collaborative programs and alliance portfolios, seamlessly integrating the goals and constraints of all key stakeholders—company, alliance partners, and, most importantly, end customers. We ensure that business collaborations are more than brilliant ideas—that they can be managed and operationally implemented to achieve measurable outcomes. [CLOSE X ]

OUR BUSINESS MUST INNOVATE. HOW DO WE FIND NEW IDEAS—AND CONSISTENTLY COMMERCIALIZE THEM?
In today's hypercompetitive business world, focusing on yesterday's successes can make market leaders blind to tomorrow's next big thing. Alliancesphere's innovators combine hands-on engagement with an objective third-party vantage point to open doors on new, often unexpected opportunities. Existing and new alliance partners often hold the key to successful innovation—and we help you work together to unlock mutual value in breakthrough developments. We also help our clients leverage proprietary and open innovation networks to foster business breakthroughs—new products, services, and technologies, as well as groundbreaking collaboration-enabled business models. [CLOSE X ]

WE NEED TO MOVE THE WORLD. CAN YOU GIVE US A BIGGER LEVER?
What's your biggest constraint? Ask any alliance manager or sales leader responsible for driving results in collaboration with partners. Their answer is always: "not enough resources." Alliancesphere's operations specialists—and virtually every one of our people is one—are expert resources on demand. Whether you're launching a new alliance or juggling too many pieces of your growing portfolio, Alliancesphere provides experienced alliance operations and support staff to establish, manage, and/or augment alliance program offices.

WE DON'T NEED FEEL-GOOD MOMENTS. HOW CAN OUR HIGH-STAKES EVENTS DRIVE MEANINGFUL OUTCOMES?
The rubber meets the road when collaborators—from senior executives to alliance managers to field sales teams—come together to do the hands-on work of making plans, driving sales, and ensuring follow-through on their joint endeavors. In high-stakes conference calls and meetings that punctuate all collaborative processes, Alliancesphere's world-class roster of facilitators ensures that competing interests and personalities always find alignment around the needs of joint customers. Our seasoned business veterans are natural leaders as well as experts at engaging high-profile, high-energy partner teams in collaborative strategy, planning, and selling programs.

A LOT OF OUR PEOPLE NEED TO LEARN TO COLLABORATE. HOW CAN WE POSSIBLY TEACH THEM ALL?
Partnering companies inevitably find they have a steep—and continually climbing—learning curve. For every experienced, highly trained alliance manager, there are dozens of executives at all levels of the business who struggle with knowing how to effectively collaborate. Alliancesphere's Train-The-Trainer (T3) programs apply decades of training and workforce development experience to not only develop our clients' collaborative capabilities, but to transfer the knowledge of how to use Alliancesphere's methodologies, processes, and other intellectual tools. In conjunction with rich methodologies, curriculum, and T3 certification programs, we truly empower our clients to do more, with more people and partners: to facilitate collaborative planning and selling, drive alliance execution, manage conflict, and provide logistical support to their joint alliance teams. [CLOSE X ]


COLLABORATION DEFINES OUR APPROACH TO BUSINESS. WHAT MUST WE DO DIFFERENTLY NOW?
Collaboration is not natural or easy. It's not in the DNA of 20th century businesses, nor is it taught by most business schools or professional service providers. That's why Alliancesphere provides expertise and methodologies that integrate collaboration end-to-end across your enterprise and its relationships. We build your organization's "collaborative DNA." We embed the hardened processes, discipline, leadership, and accountability required to drive results to the point of impact—the limited windows of opportunity where collaborations ultimately succeed or fail to realize joint value.
