The article discusses a study by consultancy Socia which found that organisations are failing to train leaders to ensure the success of public private partnerships (PPP). The study involved 92 director-level British executives from the private and public sectors that are involved in partnering. A warning was issued by Socia director David Archer on the need to invest in leadership to boost the ability to resolve conflicts and power sharing.
