ISO 44001 – Developing Collaborative Business Relationships

Whether it is internal business relationships, business with business or working with the supply chain, organisations recognise the need for better business performance. Working with other organisations on a collaborative basis, organisations can gain competitive advantage through better use of resources, cost, resource and risk management, as well as encouraging innovation.

The process of understanding ISO 44001 is critical to ensure that the correct processes are embedded into “business as usual” and that the potential benefits of collaborative working are being realised.
Providing those responsible with the necessary knowledge and skills is crucial to delivering the benefits that collaborative working offers. Collaborative relationships in the context of ISO 44001 can be multidimensional, which can be individual one-to-one relationships but more frequently might involve multiple parties, including external alliance partners, suppliers, various internal divisions and often customers, working together.
