Partnership Agreements

A partnership agreement is a tool used to describe how stakeholders work together to support implementation. Similar to a team charter, partnership agreements identify the intended results and scope of work for the engagement, what each partner will contribute, and how the partners will work together. These agreements are most effective when they are co-created among partners and reflect shared commitment and accountability.
