INTRODUCTION to Managed Collaboration (MCO)
Managed Collaboration is the client-supplier method enabling to co-create solutions AND the trusted relationships needed to succeed. Together.
Initially, MCO was conceived to address a critical need: seasoned project-based organizations had recognized that conventional procurement methods do not provide the effective foundation needed to succeed in projects and solution business.
The MCO methodology was developed to provide a professional framework enabling client and supplier to co-create high-value Solutions AND the collaborative relationship needed to succeed together in the project, from “A to Z”.
An essential aspect of MCO is its provision of a common platform, tools, and practices that are readily comprehensible and applicable to both clients and suppliers. This facilitates the active involvement, contributions, and collaboration of stakeholders from diverse functions in the solution design and decision-making.
MCO starts during the development phase, the crucial period in projects, where strategic decisions are made, that will influence the success, or failure, of the project.
