The Collaborative Working Capability Self Assessment is an 8-step diagnostic tool modelled on the operational clauses of ISO 44001 (previously BS 11000).
It is typically completed by a number of participants in an organisation to establish its readiness to engage in collaborative working relationships/partnering arrangements. The organisations are typically encouraged to complete the assessment by a ‘sponsoring’ organisation – usually one who wishes to assess or improve collaborative working in its supply chain.
It can also be used to familiarise new users with the standard.
Answers questions like:
- “How can we introduce a larger number of suppliers to the concept of collaborative relationships?”
- “How can we engage with more suppliers, more appropriately and more constructively?”
- “What do our suppliers think of themselves and their capability to have constructive relationships?”
- “Where should we focus (improvement) attention across our supply chain?”
- “What competencies and behaviours do I need to develop in my team and my suppliers?”
- Web-based managed service.
- Automated participant invitation, reminders and progress tracking.
- Optional anonymity control.
- Capture of parameter scoring and related issues.
- Reports updated in real-time.
- In-depth gap analysis between organisations, departments, functional teams, etc.
- Capture suggested improvement actions.
- Recommended actions (Improvement Report).
- Export comments and suggested improvement actions to action management tool.
- Categorise relationships for category-based reporting.
- Categorise participant under ‘roles’, for role-based reporting.
How it works:
- Individual or multiple self-assessments of organisations (or department, project, team, etc).
- Typically 1-5 participants per organisation (scalable to as many as needed)
- Aim to repeat every 12 months.
- Endorsed by and/or promoted by customer, but paid for by supplier (optionally paid for by customer).
