Strategic Alliances and Partner search:

  • Support to and management of strategic alliances.
    ACTIF-Europe has been involved int he definition and implementation of the AllianceEnterprizer tool in the framework of a European R&D project.
    Resulting tool of that R&D project enables the identification, design and monitoring of business opportunities and alliances for an enterprise whatever its size is.
    The unique aspect of the alliance tool is to be used at any time of an alliance existence by the enterprise and its consultant:
    • from an ex-nihilo approach:
      considering my resources, my strategic axis, my potential partners, my market, ..., which alliances to build or to select first?
    • up to a very opportunist approach:
      I met a potential partner at a fair or a conference, the relational fit is there and we want to collaborate: How to build a sustainable and profitable strategic alliance? Does it meet my global strategy or the rest of my activities? Are we complementary, or how should we improve to ensure strong synergy? On which products/services should we work in common? Where to start? ...
