The world is changing perhaps even faster than any of us could have imagined. In 2006, research by the Institute for Collaborative Working identified that by 2020 most new business models would embrace collaboration – partnering - alliances. Yet the focus was on traditional contracts not behaviours, skills or governance. The need for organisations to work together has perhaps never been more critical in today’s economic environment, to meet the demands of the market and growing global competition and the impact of technology and in particular communications and transparency of markets. We see today a market place were success is more about what we bring to the market rather than simply what we produce as individual organisations.
Changing the rules of the game requires alternative thinking that may be currently suppressed within the confines of current contracting practice. This transition can seldom be achieved purely based on internal actions and ISO 44001, which offers a platform for building new and exciting competitive propositions. Taking advantage of this hidden potential necessitates evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of the current capability then developing a strategy to enhance operations.
This course provides an introduction to the business discipline of collaborative working and how to make it work both for your organization and also it collaborative partners.
The course describes where and when to collaborate, and how to establish, manage, assure strategic success, and exit from collaborative relationships.
