Collaboration between businesses can be used in many ways between two or more interested parties working together for example: alliances; partnerships; JV’s; Supply Chains.

Despite cultural, legal and geographical barriers we can join together to work in a collaborative manner for a fixed period of time or on a permanent basis. Collaborative working on bids can share risk and can offer massive savings when delivering the services that are needed by the stakeholders.

Collaborative working involves soft aspects and the hard aspects of the arrangement – developing the skills we need to make collaboration a success .Collaboration brings together the strengths of individual business into a one team ethos.

The environment in which we operate is changing and the economy is challenging traditional thinking. Remaining at the forefront of your respective markets requires you to look beyond traditional structures and develop your employees to meet these new challenges.

Clear and concise objectives between collaborative businesses are paramount, combined with effective leadership to produce the positive results required. The structure of the collaborative arrangement must reflect the respective strengths of each participating business to gain best value from individual skills, knowledge and capability for the benefit of all concerned and its customer. Collaborative business relationships have been shown to deliver a wide range of benefits, which enhance competitiveness and performance whilst adding value to business of all sizes.

The selection of a collaborative partner(s) is fundamental to the success of the resulting arrangement. There must be a robust selection process, working with potential partners to understand their drivers, building dialogue to be evaluated for alignment and compatibility. You will now start from a solid base with firm foundations for the challenges ahead.

Its clear contractual arrangements will need to be put in place for the appropriate governance model that will support your specific collaborative working agreement. Ensuring collaborative working does not lose momentum and is always improving. All concerned will need to put self-interest to one side and do what’s best for the collaborative arrangement and the customer at all times.

Forging stronger bonds and levels of trust between all businesses involved in the agreement, people may change but if you have placed strong foundations and the ethos has been well installed, you will have a true partnership pushing each other to raise the bar well above the competition.
