Co-operation in Museum Professional Training and Career Development (Part 1)



Collaboration and Partnerships:

Making Them Successful Takes More Than Good Intentions


Nancy J. Fuller, Research Programme Manager, Smithsonian Center for Education and Museum Studies,

Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC, USA


While the benefits and advantages of collaboration and partnership arrangements through cross-sector alliances are extolled in management literature, and more frequently these days, required by funding agencies, the process is fraught with pitfalls. Lack of ownership in both the process and outcome, unrealistic expectations, poor communication, failure to use available talent, and the inability to compromise are among the deterrents to achieving success. Yet there is a process for building effective relationships between and among disparate entities. Awareness of this information and the application of facilitation skills can bring order to a new situation and produce satisfying results. This session will examine briefly the factors that characterise successful collaboration, and offer suggestions for building upon the unique strengths of each partner and capitalising on the synergy generated through group interactions.
