This chapter discusses the developmental stages and issues faced when managerial supervisors engage in building new interorganizational relationships. It begins with an example of alliance building, which is used as reference throughout the chapter as it defines alliance, identifies how different types of interorganizational alliances can be structured, and focuses on how supervisory managers can skillfully work with and in human service alliances. Maria Rodriguez and the Elder Care Management Program is used to illustrate each concept.
