whole is greater than the sum of its parts." It is a notion Aristotle
put forth quite a few centuries ago. Yet, his words still ring true
today, especially in regards to consortia.
strength of a consortium depends on the strength of its members.
However, it is not enough for each member to simply possess exceptional
experience and skills. To build a strong and effective consortium,
its leaders must leverage and blend the individual strengths of
its members to create a cohesive, seamless entity that collectively
works to achieve the consortium's goals.
