What you will learn
Our masterclass is based on the skills and competencies that the Association of Strategic Alliance Professionals (ASAP) has found critical to the success of collaborative business relationships.
This masterclass guides you through the entire alliance lifecycle,
covering elements such as…
- Alliance-specific strategy
- Analyzing and selecting partners
- Building trust and creating value
- Operational planning
- Alliance structuring and execution
- Launch and management
- Transform, innovate, exit
We take an adaptive approach to learning in our masterclass sessions. This allows us to dive deeper into the topics that are relevant to the circumstances that you and your fellow participants are facing. Based on the unique composition of people in the online classroom, we discuss not only the tools and practices, but also the ‘soft elements’ of alliances – such as culture and behavior.
The tools you will get:
- Scenarios: Multiple industry examples with typical challenges that help to clarify best practice approaches and tools – through interaction and experiential learning.
- Worksheets and Templates: Key tools for applying proven methods and structures to any alliance type.
- The 4-step guide to successful partner selection
- 25 tips for successful partnerships and alliances
- Successful partnerships and strategic alliances
- One year access to the Alliance Accelerator community platform.
How it works
This Alliances & Partnerships Masterclass will take place online, using Zoom video technology that allows us to present and discuss with you like in a live classroom. Scenario group work will be done by using virtual breakout rooms.
This will be a fully packed and intense class and hence we have split the Masterclass over three education sessions of 3 hours each.
In between the Masterclass sessions you will have time to apply the learning to your situation. Also you will have our unlimited support via email and in the Masterclass discussion group.
The workshop was an eye-opener for me. Not just the structure and work methods but mostly the wealth of experience used to reflect on your own situation and uncover areas for improvement.

In every profession, in every work. You sometimes need to surface for a breath of air, get inspired and energized. Never stop learning and keep your mind open for new thoughts and ideas. The time I’ve spent with Anoop Nathwani and Peter Simoons was an investment, not just for the company by providing me the right tools, methods and mindset for successfully alliances. It was also an investment in myself, to focus on the “Why” and re-discover the passion of alliances work.
