Industrial Business Systems Academy
Competence Center for Collaboration in Project Business
Success in B2B Projects depends on Professional Collaboration between sales and procurement engineering teams.
IBS Academy helps organizations in improving their collaborative capabilities and business competitiveness.
Win projects. At the start.
Collaboration in Project Business
In B2B projects clients and suppliers are mutually dependent. They succeed or fail together.
Opposite to off-the-shelves products or services (“commodities”), each B2B project involves levels of customization to specific customer’s conditions. Each project is different. It can go, for example, from a small IT solution to large industrial infrastructure.
Therefore, B2B projects involve much more than traditional “selling” or “buying” techniques and mindsets. B2B projects are based on mutual collaboration between clients and suppliers to design, engineer, implement, operate and maintain the solution.
In our complex world, whether you are a client or a supplier, the collaborative capability of your organization will increasingly be a key competitive advantage.

The Cost of Poor Collaboration
Without Collaboration, a project is doomed to fail, sooner or later.
- As a Vendor, you may fail to win new business. Demonstrating your collaborative capability to potential Clients early in the project is an essential capability in winning new contracts.
- As a Client, your project may fail to fulfill the initial expectations and to deliver its full value. Already during the execution phase, the contractual disagreements escalate into costly disputes and conflicts with a vendor.
Enabling Operational Collaboration in Project Business
Successful Collaboration creates Synergies (1+1=3). Establishing Collaborative Relationships requires a Common Ground, based on Common Objectives, Joint Activities and a Total Approach. Collaboration rests also on people’s Behavior.
Dedicated frameworks, such as ISO44001 and CROSSCONNECT are the major enablers of Operational Collaboration.
IBS Academy assists organizations in improving their collaborative capability in Project Business.
