Partnering as a method of doing business is spreading throughout the construction industry. With everyone fed up with the litigious nature of the industry, partnering represents an opportunity for owners, designers, contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers to maximize their individual abilities in a synergistic arena. In his book, Partnering for Success, Tom Warne explores the underlying principles of partnering and describes how one can develop successful partnering relationships. Mr. Warne discusses such issues as: 1) Partnering workshop development; 2) charter development; 3) team expansion; 4) value engineering; and 5) joint evaluation. He also provides samples of acutal partnering documents, a sample partner charter, and a sample joint evaluation form. As presented in Tom Warne's book, partnering will serve as the catalyst for many improvements in the process of delivering products and services that have been engineered and constructed.
