With increasing complexity in both business relationships and customer expectations it is more important than ever to clearly understand expectations and accountabilities between business partners. Most top-to-top sessions between key business partners yield limited results and fail to provide meaningful opportunity for follow up on progress for commitments made. In an environment where you are only as good as your last delivery, companies must find a way to drive long term collaborative relationships built on trust and mutual benefit.
