The Institute for Collaborative Working, in partnership with BSI, are running a series of webinars for you to understand the benefits that some of their members have achieved by working in a more collaborative manner, in line with ISO 44001 Collaborative Working Relationships Standard.
Network Rail and their supply partners have been leaders in collaboration for the last decade working together to improve rail performance to the passenger, taxpayer and other key stakeholders.
This webinar will take you through the highlights of this journey and bring you up to date with current collaborative initiatives including the rail sector deal and how the ‘acting as one team’ industry approach is improving the railway and beyond.
