How much more can you achieve by working with others rather than working alone? How should you manage relationships across various physical and cultural divides? This album explores how the formation of a variety of partnerships, spanning public, private and voluntary sectors, has radically regenerated the City of Stoke-on-Trent in the UK, bringing major improvements for the city’s physical and social environments. A second case study features Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors without Borders), and examines how this large global humanitarian relief organisation harnesses a variety of relationships to help people in extreme emergency situations. This material forms part of The Open University course B822 Creativity, innovation and change.
