Co-destiny is a strategic relationship where the organizations involved choose to share common destinies in all aspects of their business, for mutual benefit. The relationship relies on total trust and both organizations become fully interdependent and as such they succeed or fail together.
Organizations may be supply partners, or members of a supplier association. All will invest a high degree of trust and cooperation. The relationship can be described as ’win-win’.
