Partnering meetings generally take one full day to achieve agreement that will save days over the length of the project. A project team can expect to develop all the indicators of success of the partnership, a list of all immediate and emerging issues, alignment of communications and administrative processes and a feedback mechanism to keep all informed. The final stage is a signed written agreement describing all the accomplishments of the day.
