Strategic Alliances Among Health and Human Services Organizations
From Affiliations to Consolidations



May 2000 | 216 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Many of today's nonprofit health and human service organizations are developing coalitions, mergers, and other types of interorganizational alliances. These newly formed partnerships are created to gain a greater capacity within the organization and establish community-driven initiatives. While new strategies can enhance the scope and quality of organizations, they may also represent organizations own survival.

Through well-developed examples, this book examines the formation and maintenance of strategic alliances. From the motives that lead organizations to form relationships, to practical tips on how to sustain, recreate, and end partnerships, this text is a useful reference for both beginners and seasoned practitioners.
