Collaborative Working & BS11000

Collaboration – Our Expertise

We have a successful track record in developing and improving effective collaborative relationships in major and complex projects in Government, engineering, facilities management, defence, construction and civil engineering and in the nuclear and rail sectors in the UK and internationally. Our experience includes: delivery partner collaboration; strategic alliances; supply-chain relationships; aligning joint ventures and consortia in the tendering stage; and contract delivery.

We have supported organisations to achieve and maintain the BS11000 Standard for collaborative working and in fact, B2B are one of only four companies in the UK recognised by the British Standards Institute as ‘experts in implementing the BS11000 management standard’. In addition, our input to the International Standards Organisation (ISO) project to design the future international Standard for collaboration management - ISO44001 - means that B2B will continue to feature at the forefront of collaboration management practice.

Collaboration – Full Service

Effective collaboration needs people who are skilled in collaborative working and behaviours. It needs leadership to drive the development of collaborative teams and collaborative cultures, and processes and structures to hold it all in place. What makes B2B different is that we see the big picture. We specialise in collaboration performance management and have tried and tested skills in training, coaching and consultancy to deliver a full development service for managers, teams and organisations.

Collaboration Measurement & Evaluation

To maintain and improve collaboration, and to identify collaboration problems early, we can help you measure, evaluate and improve collaborative behaviours, trust-levels and the functioning of key systems and processes underpinning effective collaboration. Our measurement and evaluation systems are fully compliant with BS11000 requirements and are flexible enough to incorporate local tailoring.

Case Study

Guiding Landmarc Support Services to BS11000 Certification

Landmarc Support Services Case Study

A leading provider of integrated support services in military training, targetry and explosive handling locations.

Landmarc wanted to build on their existing relationships, by achieving BS11000 Standard and using it to deliver value and benefits for their customer and stakeholders. B2B were asked to support Landmarc in three areas:

  • Reviewing existing processes and approaches, comparing them to the BS11000 standard and working to develop and align them with it.

  • Developing and delivering a collaboration maturity review, including BS11000 compliant measures of collaborative behaviour, trust and alignment.

  • Integrating collaborative working behaviours for implementation into the new performance management and development system.

Landmarc achieved Certification in 2013 and were one of the first organisations servicing the UK Ministry of Defence estate to implement a fully BS11000 compliant collaboration review and improvement process.

“We chose B2B because of their considerable experience in collaboration management. Their advice and experience proved to be extremely valuable.”
