The Key to a Successful Partnership

“The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people.” – Theodore Roosevelt

 
Our recent successful project with the State of Arkansas made me stop to examine all the key milestones our company has experienced. Inevitably, we have shared most of them with really significant partners, whether it is our support services partner, ARS, our resellers in various countries or software partners that specialize in various fields, allowing us to provide our clients with customized software solutions.

 
Man and woman shaking hands isolated on a white background.Partnerships are certainly not easy, but somehow we’ve been lucky to have mostly positive, rewarding relationships with the companies we do business with. I think Theodore Roosevelt had the right idea, as partnerships must start with not only a common or shared interest, but you have to be able to get along, despite different viewpoints or opinions. Essentially, it’s about sharing the common goal of accomplishing the task at hand.

 
This is further explored in an article by Forbes Magazine, Top 3 Qualities of a Successful Business Partnership, contributed by Amanda Neville. She cited theses as:

 
1. Trust
Her first line on this – “This in non-negotiable. It also needs to be unreserved, unambiguous, and unequivocal.”
Basically, it just can’t be a case of lip service; the trust has to be meaningful enough that you trust your partner to make business decisions in your absence – decisions that you have no problem living with.

 
2. Compatible communication styles
This seems obvious, but might be overlooked and/or significant differences only realized when there are business meetings or negotiations with externals and one person’s communication style seems inappropriate in the setting.

 
3. Complementary skills
I would have placed this quality first, as it is the initial reason that most partnerships develop. Each has a skill that they believe can be brought together to achieve a specific outcome. If both partners bring the same skill to the relationship, then it is important that each knows the art of compromise.

 

She ends the article by stating “If you can look at your prospective partner, and check off all three of these criteria, you’re ahead of the game.”
I think Slabb has found the right formula and it plays an essential part in the success of our projects. Click here to learn more about our recent partnership with the State of Arkansas.
