When following alliance announcements it seems that most alliances are announced in healthcare and IT. Some have a regional focus and some a global focus. Here is a collection of alliance announcements and articles that caught my eye this week:
In Ireland two educational institutes are seeking collaboration in an alliance. The Dublin City University and Dundalk Institute of Technology expect to sign a formal agreement within days. A nice example, that shows that alliances can also very well be applied for non-commercial organizations working together.
Penn Schoen Berland and Puretech Internet have entered into a strategic alliance to provide clients with ‘360 degree persuasion solutions’. In June Penn Schoen Berland announced an alliance with VIA Media health and is now adding a second alliance in India.
Earlier in the week Metagenics, Inc. and GotProHealth announced a strategic alliance for the purpose of “advancing awareness of patient-centered approaches and increasing access to healthy living strategies.”
In the area of iris recognition and face capture systems Unisys and AOptix announced a strategic alliance for identity verification, national border management and aviation security.
On the website of Rhythm of Business Jan Twombly and Jeff Schuman wrote an article about Airbus and its A350 collaborative network. In the article Jan and Jeff compare Airbus’ way of working it to the way Boeing collaborated on the Dreamliner and the way Airbus learned from the mistakes Boeing made.
