Who Manages the partnering process ?
A partnership process manager (‘broker’) is an active ‘go-between’ who supports partners in navigating their partnering journey by helping them to create a map, plan their route, choose their mode of transport and change direction when necessary.
Partnership ‘broker’ is the term used internationally but it can be problematic in certain contexts.
