Stakeholder Synergy


​Partnership Economy companies are powered by a synergistic flywheel that runs on trust-based partnerships with stakeholders. Stakeholder partners contribute their time, talent, and energy to serving each other for mutual benefit.

When designed well, the flywheel spins at a steady rate, buffering business volatility and throwing off short-term and long-term social and financial value for stakeholders, shapeholders, and society.


Your organization's journey consists of four steps

1. Design the Flywheel Core: Engage Your Customers and Employees

Ignite employee passion for customer success through clarity of purpose and courageously lived values. Align execution, innovation, and risk management systems accordingly

2. Accelerate the Flywheel: Financiers, Partners, & Communities


Power up the flywheel by creating new pathways for other key stakeholders: financiers, strategic partners, and communities to participate in value creation

3. Expand the Flywheel: Include Your Shapeholders


Expand the flywheel outward by engaging your shapeholders—who influence your success—in a strategic way to reduce risk and create favorable conditions for business

4. Build Out a Multi-Flywheel Network


 Connect your company's flywheel with others by  collaborating on cross-industry, cross-sector initiatives that shape the future of business and boost social value creation


  • Aligned purpose, strategy, leadership, culture, and execution capabilities

  • Loyal, long-term customers and partners

  • Inspired and engaged employees

  • Reduced current & future risks
