The use of public-private partnerships (PPPs) is a growing international trend. By far the fastest-growing arena today for the use of PPPs is urban economic development. Cities are rapidly applying the experiences with PPPs learned over the last few decades – experiences on how to most effectively combine the strengths and resources of both the public and private sectors using 10 principles for successful public-private partnerships & alliances.

Managing Public-Private Partnerships & Alliances training course is intended to provide participants with exposure to the world of collaborative strategies, joint venture, public-private partnerships and alliances. Significant refinements in the PPP process resulted from experiences all of which are included in this course. Although PPPs can be more difficult to execute than other types of procurement, the reward can be worth the extra effort. As the case studies included in this course indicate, in many instances, PPPs make possible the completion of projects that would be impossible using more traditional methods of economic development.
