The Partnership Charter Workbook

The Partnership Charter Workbook

BMC’s Partnership Charter Workbook, written by David Gage, provides a practical, structured process for partners or prospective partners to address crucial issues. Along with David Gage’s book, The Partnership Charter: How To Start Out Right With Your New Business Partnership (or Fix the One You’re In), the Workbook is a step-by-step framework for creating a comprehensive set of agreements.

The thirteen units in the Workbook help partners to talk about seldom discussed and sensitive interpersonal issues including personal styles and values, mutual expectations, fairness, and conflict resolution. They help create clarity about the business aspects of their “deal” related to money, vision, governance, ownership, and control. The product of the process is a Charter document that commits to paper the partners’ conclusions in all areas. If you are considering a partnership, expanding one, or trying to save one from serious problems, a Partnership Charter can make all the difference.

The Partnership Charter Workbook is available for use in conjunction with BMC’s Partnership Charter process. Learn more about the Partnership Charter Workbook and the levels of assistance BMC offers to help you prepare your Partnership Charter.
