The purpose of this quantitative cross-sectional study was to examine the factors that influence the collaborative partnership effectiveness (CPE) among entity participants of the UN Global Compact (Global Compact). A survey hosted in the internet SurveyMonkey website was used to collect the data from 90 Global Compact participants. Data collected were analyzed using the Statistical Packages for the Social Sciences (SPSS) software Version 21.0 for Windows. A combination of statistical tests such as multiple linear regressions (MLR) and multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) were used to provide answers to the three research questions: (a) to what extent collaboration readiness scores predict willingness and ability to collaborate, (b) to what extent differences in CPE scores exist in participant’s job title or position, and (c) to what extent differences in CPE scores exist in entity’s amount of experience. Research results showed statistical evidence that collaboration readiness is a significant predictor of participants’ willingness and ability to collaborate effectively. Other findings of the study indicated that job title or position had no significant difference in CPE. CEOs and other positions showed statistically similar readiness, as well as willingness and ability to collaborate effectively. Additional findings indicated that experience was not a significant factor in CPE. Participants with lesser number of collaboration experiences were equally ready, willing, and able to collaborate compared to those participants who had greater number of collaboration experiences.
