The Collaboration Journey

The Collaboration Journey – Team Integration, Alignment & Collaborative Culture Development

This theme has been the bedrock for JCP and its core business for over 30 years, initially in UK then worldwide. This includes ‘Partnering’, ‘Alliancing’, ‘Collaborative Contracting’ and  ‘Integrated Project Delivery’.

The philosophy applies not only to multi party project teams comprising client, architect, engineer, main contractor and sub-contractors; but also to whole organisations, depatments or teams.

Without the whole team being aligned to their objectives, code of behaviour and to the way they will work together, then it is unlikely that they will ever achieve their objectives. Our process is to assess where the team currently is and design an initial Launch / Alignment Workshop to start the process. This will generally include changing mindsets from traditional views. After the workshop a Joint Champion’s Team creates and implements a follow up plan to embed, monitor and sustain the new way of working, which will include Champion’s Meetings and Project Review Workshops.

Our approach goes much further than just team-building, forming a high performing team needs to be done in the work context. So, as well as the focus on behaviours and relationships, our workshops always focus on real business issues; identifying challenges, problems, barriers or risks. The deliverable will be an action plan to collaboratively address the issues and improve performance to ensure the achievement of their business objectives.

The key focus of collaboration is to achieve efficiency in operation; to remove waste!
