Dutch term or phrase: 'synergie' onstaat
Sentence :

De gedachte is dat door afstemming van projecten "synergie"onstaat.

Can someone not only translate these terms, but explain to me what they mean? That synergy is created/originated by...?

Thanks!

The underlying idea/thought is that synergies come about by attuning projects
Explanation:
'Afstemmen' is indeed quite vague (and that's why so many people like using this word ;)).

A few examples:

- purchasing of products, services needed for several projects by the same purchaser
- using the same contractors for the different projects
- using the same trainers for training people involved in different yet similar projects
- project A supplies products to project B, while project B takes care of the maintenance of project A
- Rotterdam 2001 ('(European)Cultural Capital of the Year' cooperates with Bruges 2002 by exchanging artists, ideas, etc
- When 2 companies are being merged, one needs to attune both companies (e.g. see to it that integration takes place, same logo's are being used, same software, etc);

in short, the projects (very general indeed) need to be aligned, attuned,... so that synergies may arise, come about etc.

If not clear yet, I'll try again:)

Co-ordination/synchronisation of projects generates synergy/ies


Explanation:
Synergy: Benefits from combining different businesses. For example, if company A has a large stock of good ideas ripe for development but few production facilities or funds, and company B has a large fund of accumulated reserves and factories whose products face declining markets, the two can both benefit by combining. Benefits from synergy are normally claimed by the promoters of mergers, sometimes with little justification.
