Cabinet Office Project and Commercial Delivery Week – 24th to 28th November 2014
As part of the ongoing reform agenda in the Cabinet Office, ICW and BSI were invited by Dr Peter Walmsley to participate in a focussed week of events which highlight the importance of project skills in delivering policy objectives. This was to support the internal improvement and development of skills in project delivery. Cabinet Office joined together with their commercial colleagues in Crown Commercial Services in recognition of the fact that successfully delivery is a 3-legged-stool of project, commercial and policy skills.
This was a great opportunity for us to get across the critical importance of collaborative working as a key ingredient to successful project delivery and how BS11000 Collaborative Business Relationships can help support their objectives.
This was followed up on the 27th December where ICW's David Hawkins was invited to give a talk at the Cabinet Office to representatives of their Policy team, Programme management, HR and the Next Generation Shared Services Team. The aim was to broaden the awareness of BS 11000, its development towards ISO 11000 and the countries involved as well as providing examples from MoD, US Department of Defense and Network Rail on how adoption of the frame work helps to put a robust approach behind Collaboration.
