Cross sector partnerships (CSPs) face the challenge of aligning diverse partners towards the same goal of social value co-creation, and in fact might conduce to conflict and inefficient use of resources. Through a study of a Dutch-Colombian partnership for the development of coffee growing families in the South Eastern regions of Colombia, the research looks into the concept of collective identity as a mechanism to help partnerships overcome such challenge.
