Our ethos established through practical experience, has always been directed at optimising outcomes through effective Collaborative working arrangements. Whether this be through creating and leading formal contractual partnership arrangements or facilitating project specific Client – Supplier agreements, our consultants always seek to maximise the effectiveness of the Integrated Team. Given our extensive experience working with infrastructure clients for over 30 years, we have seen the benefits of working collaboratively and recognise the pitfalls of creating organisational barriers (external and internal), adversarial contract arrangements, competing priorities and goals and self-interested objectives.
Our approach is founded on creation of a strong team ethic at the earliest opportunity, regardless of project lifecycle, and we put in place metrics that provide assurance to all team members that performance will be effectively monitored.
Through our experiences working across a wide range of contractual environments in the UK and internationally, we have worked closely with Clients to understand project or programme goals and develop the most effective team-based strategy for delivery.
We always encourage our clients to explore the opportunities that true Collaborative Working arrangements can present when founded in a hard, practical and commercial environment.
Typically, our services in relation to Collaborative Working include the following:
- Team Development and Assessment (incl Psychometric testing and application)
- Team Integration
- Operating Model definition
- Determination of Key Inputs, Outputs
- Development and Monitoring of Performance Metrics
