WELCOME etc. Fire alarms I will check and advise, location of facilities, break out area, tea and coffee, dining etc., Background – as well as the SIG and what we do, The ICW and their role? Collaboration is an economic necessary, and BS11000 is being widely used as a process for getting into and leaving a collaborative relationship. The Institute of Collaborative Working (ICW) has been created to promote such an approach, and are involved in the promotion and organisation of this event. Why are we here? To review the emerging world of collaboration and to discuss advice and guidance from what we hear and our experiences, or areas that need to be addressed from a Governance viewpoint. The current economic climate has demanded new ways of working, and we are seeing more collaborative working being undertaken. There is now a real focus on “top to bottom” collaboration through the delivery of any business change, rather than a tacit acknowledgement of working better together. The guide on co-directing change was published in 2007 on this collaborative approach, and I have paraphrased part of the foreword on the next slide ……
Many forms of working together – the collaboration word occurs here, and can also be used in quite a few of the “blobs” such as Alliance. But is it actually true collaboration, and how do Senior managers see it?
Companies come together with their own structures and we want to examine the mauve triangle ………….
Suggestion… This is what we may want to do? Something that I leave to you to see if mention
Mark Sewell He will have a chat with you before the conference …………….. Mike Rickett Deputy Senior Vice-President Air Systems UK, Selex ES Mike is responsible for all of the unmanned aircraft activities performed within the UK arm of the Selex Electronics Systems Company which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Finmeccanica SpA. Mike has spent nearly 40 years in the aerospace industry in a variety of senior management roles within the three leading aerospace companies in Europe; BAE Systems, EADS and Finmeccanica. Most of these roles have involved varying degrees of industrial collaboration both within and outside of Europe. Mike was previously Director of Astrium’s Earth Observation and Science Division and more recently was Programme Director for the EuroDASS, European Consortium charged with developing the Praetorian electronic warfare suite for the Eurofighter Typhoon fighter aircraft Harvey Maylor – Biog on separate e-mail
Andy Murray – MD of Outperform David Hawkins Operations Director ICW David E. Hawkins is Director of Project Operations for ICW. He has had an extensive career in projects and procurement, particularly in the construction industry, working in many parts of the world. He has developed training programmes and has been a leading speaker in the field of exploiting relationship management through effective leadership and strategy development. He is a regular contributor to professional magazines and journals, is the joint author, with Shan Rajogopal of Sun Tzu and the Project Battleground and author of The Bending Moment: Energizing Corporate Business Strategy, both published by Palgrave Macmillan.
Crucially, we don’t want to duplicate or disrupt the good work that is already going on… But we will be setting up some new work streams, for example…
Construction at the heart of the economy – key for economic growth in other sectors Over the next ten years e.g. in water – Thames Tideway; in energy – nuclear programme; in housing – huge retrofit programme Great progress on safety, by 2025 want to be in the same place on health; want to be a zero harm industry We want the best and brightest; from a diverse range of backgrounds; boosting the number of women – fresh ideas for the industry We must have the skills to match up to the demand for construction; a workforce ready to meet the industry’s challenges in 2025 Three aspects of sustainability: environmental, social and economic. This strategy will look at all three – need to make the business case for ethical business practices
In line with what you have heard today, from your discussion and the booklets – examine the two items in your groups and discuss what you feel is different about a true collaborative approach and what you expect to see from a management viewpoint. You could tackle this from a few views, the ultimate Client on the outside looking in, the MD of Sponsoring companies, the PD and the document controller or site technician. What are the a management questions you would expect to ask in each of these posts? Principles of governance of multi-owned projects 2. Unified decision making 3. Unambiguous project representation 5. Governance compatibility 6. Authorisation points 7. Risk and reward apportionment 8. Efficiency 12. Resolution of conflict Change management Take forward thoughts and outputs and summarise with a view to updating our guidance.

Andy and I represent APM SIG Governance SIG formed nearly 10 years ago. The APM is committed to influence a transformation in the way that governance is applied. Our vision is a landscape (both UK and internationally) within which organisations have adopted good practice in the governance of project management with impressive and targeted results from their portfolio of project and change initiatives. The GovSIG has adopted the following rationale for the adoption of good governance: Achieving Change Successfully with Confidence and Control The target audience for the SIG has tended to be Board members and their equivalents, those that sponsor projects and programmes, portfolio directors, company/organisation secretaries and other senior executives (CxOs). Andy will be explaining more about the definitions
Governance very topical – with good cause. US Sarbanes-Oxley Act 2002 UK Companies Act, 2008 UK Corporate Governance Code, June 2010 Impact of project outcome on organizational reputation Financial squeeze Quality and transparency of decision making Relationships
ISO std coming out later this year 2 elements to consider
Many organisations – e.g. investment bank Governance of individual projects – investment checks and resourcing. Making decisions on a transactional basis – sub-optimal using template + min criteria. Doesn’t look at in the context of the whole portfolio – where best to invest – and by definition some we won’t bother with even if they pass minimum criteria Want best return from a suite of investments Illustrates difference in Project vs PM governance (portfolio) Maybe come back to in panel conversation
Do not spend too long on this.
Many players – a system with multiple players Everyone needs to play their part – can’t win the premiership just with a world class goalkeeper Sponsors and exec have key roles – influence culture et al.
Created the first edition of Directing Change 7 years ago and went on to publish Sponsoring Change and Co-Directing Change. 60000 thousand copies downloaded / sold. Well regarded advice and guidance on how to go about applying good governance practice to the Management of Projects. 2 nd edition Directing change is ranked 53,000 in amazon.co.uk This is a very good ranking (there are 3m books on Amazon….) Over 60,000 copies of the first edition of this guide are in use internationally by boards of directors, public sector governing bodies, their advisers, academics, trainers and the next generation of senior management currently studying management and business studies. Great Feedback of its use for training, performance improvement, auditing and standard s development in continental Europe, In eastern Europe, in USA and Canada and as far afield as Australia.
Focus on GoPM Also on management system Effectiveness of governance Efficiency of governance Overall outcomes of governance

Objective – Collaborative Business Relationships‘To help stimulate yourthoughts’………3 Questions to askyourself:- How is it that some collaborative projectsperform better than others? What are the contributors and inhibitors tosuccessful collaborative projects? How do we learn from our experience andtranslate this into best practice?
Successful Collaborative RelationshipsWhat does ‘best practice’ look like?Co-directing ChangeBS11000
Successful Collaborative RelationshipsCommon themes across these approaches: Aligned Project Objectives & understanding of individual objectives An integrated delivery organisation Common systems and processes Contract conditions that encourage a collaborative environment Joint Risk Management An Issues resolution process combined with an early warning system Joint Value Creation Process Collaborative Culture – with Behavioural developmentOverall - A ‘Best for Project’ approach
Case Studies to illustrate themes(and a question for thought)

Organisational Integration –Q – How can we prepare ourselves better for integrated team working?TUPE- Creation of ‘one team’- ‘New World’ workshops for 650 staff- ‘Best person’ for the role between partners- Focussed on objectives agreed with HA- Every team and team member knows whatthey are there to achieve, aligned to acommon directionRecognised by HA as model process
Joint Risk Management – NWGAContractorRiskClientContingencyContractorRiskSharedRiskClientContingencyJoint ProactiveAnd ReactiveMitigation=No transferred riskNo transferred riskShared Risk PrincipleQ – Do we ask our partners and suppliers to take on unrealistic risk?
Contract Conditions – ODA Aquatics Centre After PQ ODA sent out aframework contract andengaged in 3 months ofcompetitive dialogue withtenderers Bidders conditions werecustomisedQ – How do we engage with our partners and suppliers on a best value basis?ODA recognised that on complex multi-disciplinary projects with manystakeholders circumstances will changeODA Objective – to enable bidders todeliver best value to ODA
Issue Resolution – A3 HindheadQ – How do we encourage the early identification of potential issues?Case Study:•High Profile public infrastructure project•High Multi Stakeholder & community interest•Complex technical constructionSolution:•Detailed Stakeholder mapping and engagement•Early identification of potential issues - reward•Detailed contingency planning and mitigationLearnings• Early issue recognition analysis and resolution – with all Stakeholders• Understand that all parties are working towards the same goal.• Agree in advance how the contract should be administered - stepped escalation andissue resolution process.This required a cultural change in approach supported by behavioural development
Value Creation – Terminal 2BQ – How do we create a culture to support innovation and value creation?
To support successful CollaborationWe all (Clients, Partners, Sub-contractors & Suppliers) need to domore of the following……….– Understand your own specific objectives– Help to align the objectives of all parties in the relationship– Select the leadership and team on a ‘best person’ basis– Be prepared to share more information– Raise the difficult issues early in an open and honest way– Encourage joint Value Creation and Risk Management– Develop your people for collaborative working– Support each other - especially in adverse circumstances

Co-directing Change - PrinciplesP1. Formal arrangementsThere should be formally agreed governancearrangements.P2. Unified decision makingThere should be a single point of decision making for theproject.P3. Unambiguous project representationThere should be a clear and unambiguous allocation ofauthority for representing the project in contacts withowners, stakeholders and third parties.P4. Business caseThe project business case should include agreed, andcurrent, definitions of project objectives, the role of eachowner, their incentives, inputs, authority andresponsibilities.P5. Governance compatibilityEach owner should assure itself that the legal competenceand obligations, and internal governance arrangements ofco-owners, are compatible with its acceptable standards ofgovernance for the project.P6. Authorisation pointsThere should be project authorisation points and limitingconstraints to give owners the necessary degree of controlover the project.P7. Risk and reward apportionmentThere should be agreed recognition and allocation or sharing of rewards andrisks, taking account of ability to influence the outcome and creating incentives tofoster co-operative behavior.P8. EfficiencyProject leadership should exploit synergies arising from multi-ownership andshould actively manage potential sources of conflict or inefficiency.P9. Participation changeThere should be a formal agreement that defines the process to be invoked andthe consequences for assets and owners when a material change of ownership isconsidered.P10. ReportingReporting during both the project and the realization of benefits should providehonest, timely, realistic and relevant data on progress, achievements, forecastsand risks to the extent required for good governance by owners.P11. Independent reviewThere should be a mechanism in place to invoke independent review or scrutinywhen it is in the legitimate interests of one or more of the project owners.12. Resolution of conflictThere should be a dispute resolution process agreed between owners that doesnot endanger the achievement of project objective.
Benefits of adopting a formal approach Optimise your portfolio of projects Avoid many of the common failures in project andprogramme performance Improve relationships with staff, customers and suppliers Minimise risks to the organisation arising from projects Maximise the benefits to be realised from projects Assurance of the continued development of the organisation Assurance that robust governance requirements are appliedacross the projects managed in your organisation 53
