    Collaborative Competencies coverICW has recently published its first edition of ‘collaborative competencies’. This has been developed as a guide to help organisation wanting to build a structured approach and link to internal people development. It follows a number of requests from organisations transitioning to or implementing ISO 440001 where there is an increased focus on competences and behaviours. It has been developed around the framework of Attributes, Abilities and Attitude to identify considerations at various levels of engagement in a collaborative venture. The ICW Special Interest Group will over the coming months look to review the booklet and recommend any additional considerations, however it was considered important to move the process forward immediately.

    ICW recognises that major complex programmes often comprise thousands of contractual obligations, with multi-tiered supply chains and a wide range of stakeholders. To drive maximum value from these complex relationships and contracts, the essential needs of both collaboration and contractual compliance must be kept at the forefront of programme management.

    Driving simplicity into such complex environments, ICW is pleased to announce that it has combined its broad collaborative experience and its ISO 44001 guidance, tools and templates with Affinitext' s Intelligent Document Format (IDF) technology and smart contract management system. Fully licenced copies of the Standard and Collaborative Business Relationship Management System (CBRMS), including Joint Relationship Management Plans (JRMPs), are transformed into IDF and published in a powerful online library, along with all supporting compliance documents. The IDF library enables quick comprehension of and compliance with the requirements of the Standard. Affinitext's unique Task Management and Knowledge Sharing modules ensure effective online management of the full ambit of collaboration models and structures, as well as of the contractual obligations which influence and drive behaviours. Embed collaboration as your day-to-day way of working.
