If we all set off at the same time in different vehicles, to go to the same place, are we Partners?
Projects require many people, in many teams, working in smaller sub-teams, to coordinate their activities and efforts across space and time to achieve a single outcome.
Reading this sentence, one would be lead to believe that these people are "Partnering", in Partner Land, to achieve that single outcome. But back here in reality we know that's just not true. Politics inside teams, variations and disputes between teams, and the often total lack of over arching vision or guidance from appointed leaders all come together to create that awesome place we call Project Land.
