Avraham Ketko, Simona Shechter Gilboa, Ana-Maria Bercu, Maria-Viorica Bedrule-Grigoruta


The literature on local government management seldom relates to the issue of collaboration between municipal corporations.This article seeks to contribute to this subject, while projecting the existing knowledge of management of organizations in general to the local municipal sphere in particular. 

The main aim of the article is to evaluate the preparatory activities required as a preliminary stage for the initiation and promotion of collaboration between municipal corporations. The methodology used is based on quantitative analyze and qualitative ones (Likert scale).
