Collaboration is a common terminology in todays business world but is seldom fully understood or fully integrated into working practices. 

As major projects become increasingly more complex in both national and international programmes relationships between organisations and their people can represent a significant risk to the parties involved. 

The development and publication of the international standard for collaborative working focused on how organisations can take a systemic approach to ensuring the appropriate focus on those key strategic relationships.  

Topics Covered
•    Understanding the strategic implications of relationship management from developing concepts for project management of complex programmes through to the implications of establishing appropriate exit strategies. 
•    Developing robust business cases to ensure appropriate recognition of performance and risk issues 
•    The critical impact of appropriate partner selection 
•    The role of project management to ensure embedding and maintaining the right attitudes and behaviours
