Individual organisational benefits
These are the ways in which partnership can benefit individual partners. These benefits are often intrinsically linked to the collaborative advantages listed above.
- Accessing in-kind physical resources: e.g. materials/supplies, staff, workspaces, vehicles, IT equipment
- Accessing in-kind non-physical resources: Technical knowledge and expertise, publicity, capacity building/training, data and information
- Accessing additional funding/financial resources: e.g. for a specific program/initiative, for capacity development/training of staff, for the publication of reports or guidelines, for staff salaries
- Enhanced credibility, legitimacy, and influence: By association with well-known or well-regarded entities or initiatives and/or as a result of extra impact achieved through the partnership
- Access to new connections and peer-to-peer learning: Partners give access to networks and contacts not previously accessed
- Improved staff performance and morale: Through working with counterparts from other organisations and achieving impact together
