We investigate partial monoid actions, in the sense of Megrelishvili and Schroeder [12]. These are equivalent to a class of premorphisms, which we call strong premorphisms. We describe two distinct methods for constructing a monoid action from a partial monoid action: the expansion method provides a generalisation of a result of Kellendonk and Lawson [10] in the group case, whilst the approach via globalisation extends results of both [12] and [10].
