Key illustration in Mastering Alliances. Original: The ‘Allegory for good and bad governance’, Ambrogio Lorenzetti (1338). This painting had the purpose of a mirror for monarchs in the Middle Ages to remind them of the virtues they must practice to make courageous, thoughtful, balanced and fair decisions, thereby, ensuring good governance. A mirror which can still be interesting for board members in our time..

'Mastering Alliances' published, a whitepaper on cross-organizational collaboration[bewerken]

donderdag 23 augustus 2018 - The new publication 'Mastering Alliances' seeks to provide alliance management tools to managers and other professionals involved in the development and operation of cross-organizational collaboration.

This white paper is a translation of the Dutch publication 'Ketens de Baas' and was based on the 10+ years of experience the authors have in the Dutch alliance for data and tax on wages. The alliance won the ASAP Individual Alliance Excellence Award in 2017 and has been called 'the financial and data aorta of the Netherlands' because it is responsible for 60% of all revenues for the Dutch Internal Revenue Service.
