Ross, a consultant who provides corporations, nonprofits, and government agencies with strategies and tools to manage their stakeholder engagement processes and facilitate partnerships across traditional sectors, offers tools and frameworks to help managers design, implement, and evaluate partnerships between nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and corporations across sectors that add value for all parties involved. She describes key terms and frameworks; external factors, including globalization, advances in technology, and widening income inequalities; key trends in the NGO sector, such as changes in revenue streams, and the business sector, such as shifts in consumer and investor priorities; how NGOs and businesses can engage with and without an exchange of resources; and 46 partnership cases and the factors that made them successful, looking at bilateral partnerships between an NGO and corporation, tri-party partnerships including an NGO, business, and government agency, and multi-stakeholder initiatives. She ends with an eight-step decision-making framework and tools to help managers oversee their partnership portfolio, assess if current partnerships are still creating value, design partnership agreements, and create indicators to evaluate the partnership's added value.
