Collaborative Business Relationships
The need for greater collaboration among construction clients and supply chain partners has been long understood, but, too often, construction businesses become entrenched in traditional adversarial positions.
Greater care in identifying and establishing business relationships can help avoid this, as can paying constant attention to the health of that relationship.
BS11000 framework systems and process development
Invennt has invested heavily in embedding the collaborative principles of BS11000 into its advice and consultancy support.
We can help construction companies create and embed the culture of collaborative, joint working, with formal implementation of BS11000 processes where required, plus leadership, coaching and mentoring for project and business leaders.
BS11000 tender assessment
We can also help construction supplier teams respond to tenders requiring collaborative competences, coaching the right behaviours and creating the systems that will help teams demonstrate their cultural fit.
‘Talking the right talk’ during procurement is not always followed by ‘walking the right walk’ during service delivery.
Sometimes the behaviours of a supposedly collaborative partner can change, undermining trust in the commercial relationship.
Major project and programme interventions
We can help partners by independently evaluating the success of collaborative arrangements, and, where necessary, recommending changes to align both parties with the original aims.
Analyse and diagnose problems with complex collaborations
Invennt can also help teams devise and implement improvements, and provide objectivity when it comes to measuring these.
