Abstract : The current literature addressing the need to build partnership capacity in the military fails to acknowledge certain foundational factors that enable cooperation. As a result, the DoD lacks a framework at the strategic level to accurately assess potential partnerships and their likelihood of success. As this analysis proves, cooperation is not guaranteed, especially in military partnerships. Without a framework to assess the likelihood of success of a potential partnership, the DoD risks engaging in multinational endeavors more likely to fail than succeed.
