This study presents the insights of 294 state, market and civil society actors engaged in cross-sector partnerships all over the world. From 2008-2012 they were questioned on their experiences with -often- complex partnerships. We wanted to identify a number of common denominators that practitioners find relevant. This resulted in a top-5 list of critical success factors for partnering, an explanation why these elements are essential for effective partnerships and how they can be realised.
