Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Historically, much collaborative ventures research has focused on the identification and description of factors that are thought to influence the success of these inter-organisational arrangements. However, identifying these factors does not seem to have reduced the incidence of collaborative venture failure. Based on an in-depth case analysis of one particular multi-party, multi-sector collaborative venture, insights into the establishment and ongoing management of such ventures are illustrated. Novel success factors are derived from interviews with key personnel, and a comprehensive conceptual framework and several testable propositions based on stakeholder representations are developed to assist in both the study and development/management of multi-party, multi-sector collaborative ventures.
