By Michael GeddesPublic Private Partnerships are a well-established vehicle for delivering large capital projects or managing services. Many organizations are working with ‘multi sector partnerships’ across a wide range of sectors involving multiple partners. The increasing complexity of these partnerships, of the risks associated with them and the outcomes required of them, demand a new level of skill from those establishing and building the partnership.

This definitive guide on how to get the most out of a public private partnership, offers a highly pragmatic approach to the processes behind multi sector partnerships. It explains the skills of championing and managing the partnership internally, the organizational structure that underpins most successful partnerships and how to resource and staff the partnership. It also looks at assuring accountability and good governance and managing and communicating the performance of any partnership.
