She developed her non-adversarial approach while at United Contractors and took it out into the industry to confirm that it also worked for other organizations and projects. Sue has worked for almost 30 years to perfect the model for Collaborative Partnering. In 2009, Sue founded the International Partnering Institute; the industry’s only non-profit focused on researching and sharing best practices for Collaborative Partnering.
