Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged

Consequently, Ford owned its own steel mill, iron ore boats, and mines-even it's own electrical generation facility. Today, however, most companies-including Ford-realize that partnering often makes sense. It allows companies to work together, each focusing on what it does best, and spreading the cost and the risk of expensive projects.
