In today’s digital age, businesses need to partner with other organisations to stay competitive or simply deliver against the ever-increasing demands placed upon them to provide enhanced customer experiences. However, it is essential to choose the right digital partner to ensure success.

The past two ukactive Digital Maturity and Effectiveness consultations have raised various questions from operators looking for support in this area. In response, this latest paper in ukactive’s Digital Futures series will explore the value of discovery as an approach to digital partnering, look at the challenges, and introduce some useful free tools.

Digital partnering, also known as digital collaboration, refers to the process of two or more parties coming together to achieve a common goal using digital technology. In today’s digital age, good digital partnering is essential for the success of operators in meeting the needs of their customers.

While digital partnering offers many benefits, there are also several challenges that operators may face when entering into partnerships. To overcome these challenges, organisations should carefully evaluate potential partners, establish clear communication channels, define expectations and responsibilities, and develop a solid partnership agreement. Additionally, operators should be open to adapting their approach and process to better align with their partners.

However, it is important to note that not all digital partnerships are created equal. The wrong partnership can lead to wasted resources, missed opportunities, and even reputational damage. Therefore, it is essential to evaluate potential partners carefully to ensure they are a good fit and that the partnership will be mutually beneficial.

In conclusion, good digital partnering can be a powerful tool for operators, their staff and members they serve. By partnering with the right companies, operators can access expertise, drive innovation, increase efficiency, enhance market presence, and mitigate risk.
