Executive Director, CBGA
Q: As the head of a Think Tank, what in your opinion are the advantages of working in a consortium?
Q: Are there any specific points you keep in mind while identifying appropriate members/organisations to work with in a consortium?
- The idea behind joining a consortium is to build positive synergies, and hence we need to be very careful about the compatibility of the perspectives of other partner groups with ours.
- Identifying appropriate partners is key—the partner organisations should have suitable skills, capacity and time. They should be adding significant value to the project.
- The participating organisations should be chosen based on their capability or strengths to deliver.
