ISO TC286 Collaborative Business Relationships

Continued Development of the ISO 44001 Series

8th September 2017

 

We have just completed a hectic week in Stockholm, helping to further develop the ISO 44001 series of standards and guides for collaborative business relationships.

Although the main purpose of the meeting was the continued development of ISO 44002, the new guide, discussions also covered the development of a summary 'principles' document and a guide to collaboration for SMEs.

The ICW has already published a principles document, which may provide a basis for a similar ISO document, and the Italian delegation are keen to provide a framework for networks of SMEs that are common in innovative industrial sectors.

We have some significant work to do on all documents before it will be worth calling a plenary meeting.  Thus, we expect the next Technical Committee to be held in late spring 2018 and, hopefully, in the far-east.

International Construction Week, Kuala Lumpur

Ecobuild South-East Asia Conference & Expo

12th April 2017

 

We were delighted that our Paul Greenwood provided a presentation, entitled ‘Creating Value Through International Collaboration - A Framework for Working Together in New Markets’.

The presentation raised the issues of market entry and the global success/failure of JVs and alliance, then explored collaboration and the ISO 44001 model.

The presentation proved to be timely, with the Minister of Works commenting on the export performance of Malaysian developers and contractors, and the Chief Executive of the Construction Industry Development Board commenting on the need for contractors to forge JVs in order to be able to undertake major infrastructure projects in the Region.

We were pleased that we had caught the mood of the occaision; this was reinforced by robust topical questions on collaboration as a discipline and on the the use of the new International Standard.
