Summary
"This ground-breaking text is concerned with the management of situations in which people have to work collaboratively with those in other organizations. The last few years have seen an explosion of inter-organization working throughout different continents. Collaboration between organizations can address issues such as economic development, health, the environment, risk sharing, supply chain efficiency and human resource management. It is an activity that touches almost every aspect of business and social life."--BOOK JACKET
