Mastering Cooperations: Learn how to succeed where 50% fail

In today’s rapidly evolving markets, cooperations offer various opportunities to help companies stay competitive and maximize their profits while anticipating future challenges and building up resilience.

By pooling resources and forming strategic alliances, companies can benefit from market expansion, resource optimization, innovative and competitive advantages. And yet, companies face various cooperation-specific challenges, translating into roughly 50% of cooperations failing. Thus, organizations need to understand and proactively address these challenges to ensure the success of the cooperation.

Cooperation-specific challenges can be divided into three main areas: organizational, technical, and methodical challenges.

From an organizational viewpoint, companies face misaligned goals, relationship conflicts, and clashing cultures. Hence, they need to align their diverse structures, goals, and strategies, overcome communication barriers, and establish a shared cooperative culture.

From a technical viewpoint, companies face difficulties due to technical incompatibilities, data security concerns, and confidentiality issues. They must proactively address these concerns, ensure the system compatibility, unify data formats and protocols, and prepare for future projects by ensuring technical scalability and adaptability.

Finally, from a methodical viewpoint, insufficient planning and coordination as well as a lack of clear decision-making mechanisms can hinder the success of a cooperation. Therefore, cooperating companies need to develop comprehensive coordination plans, harmonize governance structures, and continuously assess the risks and the project’s progress.
