What is Alliance Best Practice?

 Alliance Best Practices (ABP) at its core is the biggest collection of best practices for alliances founded with the belief that using best practices in alliances can lead to more efficient and successful outcomes for companies. ABP believes that by following a best practice approach in alliances, companies will make more progress faster and with less risk than a non-best practice approach. This belief has remained unchanged since the company was founded in 2002.

The Alliance Best Practice Vision

"Standing on the shoulders of giants"

Alliance Best Practice Ltd (ABP) was founded on a simple idea.  That best practices in alliances exist and that by following a best practice approach companies will achieve more progress more quickly and with less risk than by following a non best practice approach.​  That vision remains as true today as it did in 2002 when we founded the company. 


We implement that vision in a simple 5 step process as follows


Identify challenges with ABP members.


Check that the problem is a common one.


If it is, research solutions to the problem (Success Factors)



Collate all Success Factors and identify Common Success Factors (CSFs)

Document CSFs for member use.
