Think about current, or upcoming projects, and where you might need to partner in the virtual space.
As you step into new partnerships consider:
Why are you considering partnering in this project, rather than going it alone?
What’s important for you in terms of the outcome of this project?
What’s important for them?
What might they not know about your, or your work focus?
What’s important about your focus to communicate?
Where do your work/priorities overlap? Where are they not overlapping?
What assumptions might be made, or might need to be clarified?
What would happen if things aren’t successful?
What will happen if they are successful?
What else is important to note?
If this is a new partnership, what else can you leverage that you’ve learned from other projects or partners?
