Abstract

Inter-organisational partnerships bring enormous benefit to the widest circle of stakeholders. Nevertheless, agreeing to collaborate does not automatically ensure success of the partnership and give a positive social, economical or even organisational impact. According to the scientists, institutional interferences, economic or government disincentives and decision-making handicaps could create significant obstacles to partnership efficiency. The article examines success factors of the inter-organisational partnership effectiveness in local government, with reference to an opinion of Lithuania's local government representatives. The partnerships' success factors indicated by the Lithuanian practitioners coincide with the ones formulated by foreign researchers. However, they are slowly put into practice because of systemic and managerial impediments preventing inter-organisational partnership.
