3Who are we? - Description Alliance Best Practice Ltd (ABP) was formed as a research consultancy specialising in strategic alliance relationships.ABP was developed to satisfy the need that many organisations have to become more structured in their instigation and management of business to business relationships.The company was founded by Mike Nevin (Managing Director) using open, non-proprietary alliance and partnership best practice standards developed over the last 19 years.From deep and specific research into over 26,000 identified collaborative relationships ABP was able to discern repeating success factors which appeared critical to commercial success. ABP subsequently spent 3 years validating this research with over 300 alliance professionals to develop a coherent framework for alliance success.ABP currently has 20 alliance specialists who fulfil assignment work.

11Why are we different? Alliance Best Practice is different because; It owns a unique database of over 97,000 entries which identifies what approaches leading organisations are employing to ensure partnering success.It only ever uses tried and tested best practice activities which have already been developed by other successful organisations. This ensures a better quality of solution in less time.The ABP people are internationally recognised teachers and presenters on the subject of strategic relationships.ABP uses a ‘client best solution’ approach this means that it will actively recommend other consultants and advisers from its extensive global network if it is in the best interests of the client.The Alliance Best Practice approach has now been used by over 60% of the organisations in ASAP (the Association of Strategic Alliance Professionals) and by 8 of the 12 founding Sponsors of the association.
12What do our clients think of us? “It was the end of a long day and we were all tired but Mike made us sit up and get involved. It was so good we chose to go on for another 30 minutes rather than have a drink at the bar!” – VP Alliances EMEA SBSThe Workshop presenter (Mike Nevin) just keeps on giving and giving more information, it was absolutely amazing the people he has worked with.” - Alliance Director IBM“Whatever drug Mike’s on I’d like some! I have never seen an individual with so much energy and passion.” - Alliance Director IBM“Your feedback scores were the aggregated best out of over 130 presenters at the MPI Forum We look forward to seeing you again at Davos in 2006”. - MPI Conference Organiser“You will never be able to write fast enough to get all the good bits down!” – VP Alliances CognosMike was quite happy to talk to me on the telephone after the event. He even gave me a huge number of extra ideas that I could put into practice.” – VP Alliances EMEA Philips“Mike has the collaboration gene. I mentioned in passing some problems I was having with a partner and within 4 days after the event Mike had introduced me to three relevant people in the organisation – 2 of them who were significantly senior to me but still prepared to take my call.” – Alliances Director Cisco“I have never before seen a conference leader or facilitator (Mike Nevin) performing that role in such an inspiring, supporting and empowering way - Excellent!” – Feedback Forms ASAP Europe“I immediately suggested the relationship refresh idea to my global strategic partner and they loved it!” – Alliance VP (NA) Capgemini
13What is the value for our clients I? ABP has so far generated over $221 million of new incremental revenue for its clients since The Following are some specific examples:“ABP has allowed us access to pragmatic evidence of best practice which has been crucial in developing the strategic presentations that have guided our development thinking. Knowing the actions, trends, and intentions of our competitors and alliance partners has allowed us to position our alliance strategies to best effect with minimal effort. Early signs are that the incremental revenue generated as a result of this assignment will far outweigh any cost involved to a factor of over 100 to 1 (i.e. over £9m).” – Patrick Nicolet Global Head of Sales and Alliances Capgemini.“I thought I knew a thing or two about strategic alliances until I met ABP, they take it to a whole new level.” – Dr Ian Shellard Group Head of Global Physical Logistics“The commercial difference between a systematic strategic relationship in which both parties are truly going to market together compared with a reseller relationship was exponential not incremental for us.” – James Eddo Strategic Alliance Director“I used the Alliance Best Practice approach in my relationship with IBM. Before I used it the best year I had ever had was €6m. Last year after using the approach we generated €23m!” - Roopa Dhanalal Director EMEA Alliance for IBM BCS
14What is the value for our clients II? “It wasn’t until ABP explained the impact that the lack of a strategy was having that we talked to our partners about it and sure enough the ‘drag’ was considerable. We didn’t even have a sensible document we could share with partners which showed them how we viewed them.” – Juergen Kircher Corporate Planning Director Siemens EN.“It was essential to have an external expert explain to our partners what best practice represented rather than how we did things in IBM. ABP did this extremely effectively.” – Jim Whitehurst Director ISV alliances IBM.“In the quarter following the ABP exercise we generated more revenue than in the previous three quarters combined!” – Jeff Gerkin VP WW IBM Alliance Cognos“We generated an extra £7.5m of non budgeted revenue as a result of working with ABP. If I had known how quick and effective the exercise was I would have done it long ago!” – Lucy Dimes VP Global Strategic Partnerships, BT
