Pp. 1-8 (8)
Helena Syna Desivilya and Michal Palgi
In light of the blurred nature and conceptual imprecision with regard to the construct of partnership and
the fragmented relevant literature, the introductory chapter provides an overview of types of partnerships, impetus
for developing them and processes of building partnerships, underscoring their paradoxical nature and conflict
dynamics. It constitutes an integrated conceptual map for the analysis of various types of organizational partnerships.
