Our Books Help You Develop Your Own Programs,
Be A More Effective Client And Participant

Our books provide useful insights, strategies and skills enabling you to carry out your own partnering and teambuilding work, or to be a more effective client and participant in partnering, teambuilding and training programs.  Thanks to the world wide web, all of these books are readily available online.  Following are brief descriptions of and links to each of our books on the web site.

Our most recent book, The Partnering Solution (Career Press, 2005) "is a tools book" which provides insights, strategies and skills enabling your to increase partnering effectiveness in a wide range of applications:  outsourcing, strategic alliances, design and construction, government, science, etc.  Reviewer David Hanitchak, Director of Planning and Construction at Massachusetts General Hospital comments, “If you're undertaking a complex project you will benefit from this mind-opening book. And if you're a client, especially one in a large, complex organization, this book has the potential to change the brainscape of the bureaucracy. Beg, borrow or buy this book.”  Order from at this link:

Our earlier book, the Partnering Manual For Design And Construction (McGraw-Hill, 1996) provides step-by-step instructions for planning, facilitating and following up on your own partnering for design and construction projects.  Written and often used as a text, the book is also very useful for participants in partnering programs, enabling them to derive the full value construction partnering offers.  Order from at this link:
