Collaboration refers to organisations working together to address problems and achieve goals which aren’t achievable alone, the outcome benefiting both businesses and is fostered through open and productive communication. ISO 44001 is a roadmap of establishing and managing collaborative relationships with suppliers, customers, partners and inter-department or function.

Why should it be considered?
ISO44001 involves are structured approach to sharing resources, experience, and skills supported by a method for creating, delivering, and exiting relationships and demonstrates that your business relationships are truly collaborative.
Collaborative business relationships can allow for a wide range of benefits including giving your organisation the competitive edge and enhancing performance whilst adding value. ISO 44001 provides a framework which understands that every business collaboration will be unique and will allow for a road map of development to be created.
What impact will it have?
Proactive approach to risk:
Implementing ISO 44001 allows your business to manage relationships effectively allowing you to work closely with your supply chain, identify risk and have a proactive approach in place to manage them effectively.
The most common reason for certification is that it is often a prerequisite in tender selection criteria, and it is quite often this which drives organisations to implement ISO 44001. Therefore making them comparable with their competitors who may already have certification to the collaborative business relationships standard, or if the competitor isn’t certified to the standard, giving them a competitive advantage. Having a positive reputation and good personal relationships are no longer enough to guarantee contract retention.
Implementing ISO 44001 allows your organisation to continuously adapt to changing business. The focus within the standard of continual improvement, operational awareness, team management, value creation and working together ensures sustainable relationships with the right cultures and behaviours, allowing for progressive integration of processes and systems.
