The Power of Managed Collaboration in B2B Projects & Solutions

In the ultra-competitive 21st century, collaboration management becomes a strategic capability for organizations involved in B2B Projects.

For people and their organizations, the ability to consistently establish new collaborative relationships, externally or internally, in their projects can no longer be regarded as “nice to have” and left to good luck.

Instead, collaboration should be managed as a discipline, like other operational processes of the organization, such as Quality, Finance or HR management. Managed Collaboration provides the framework and body of knowledge to handle collaboration in a systematic, structured, scientific way.

Ultimately, the power of Managed Collaboration is to enable people and their organizations to consistently engineer collaboration with business partners and to transform it into a core competency that is vital to success in B2B projects.

Managed Collaboration in B2B Projects & Solutions

We want to improve the way organizations and their people collaborate in B2B Projects & Solutions.

B2B Projects & Solutions are complex endeavors on which clients and suppliers are mutually dependent. The way they establish and maintain collaboration is a key component in their mutual success or failure.

However, the management of collaborative relationships is too often left to chance in most organizations. Wrong approaches and mindsets are also too often applied. It should not be!

We need new tools to think across this space, to not only realize successful, high-value, and sustainable project assets for organizations and society at large but also to empower organizations and their people to change the way they do business for the better.

We believe in furthering a new way of managing collaboration in a structured way, with methods and mindsets that are practical and actionable in any B2B Projects & Solutions.

We believe that Managed Collaboration in B2B Projects & Solutions is the next Big Thing.
