How I discovered a fresh approach to business collaboration

Helping People to Work More Collaboratively

I’ve worked in a great variety of roles over the past 25 years, from coaching my local rugby teams to serving as a process control engineer, manager, consultant and business leader for several global organisations.

However, at every stage of my career, the common thread has been my interest in helping people work more effectively together to produce a result that’s greater than anything they could achieve individually.

People working collaboratively together solving problems and delivering outcomes successfully

Effective Business Collaboration

This has become more and more important in today’s business world, where organisations are finding themselves having to work within a global market, often for the first time.

Although they may be quite accomplished at getting their own teams to work together effectively, developing a successful business collaboration with another organisation, potentially in another country, is still proving challenging for them.

As a result, communication breaks down, projects are pushed over-time and over-budget, and a promising business collaboration turns sour.

Business Collaboration Solution

Does this sound familiar?

If you have struggled with business collaboration in the past, you’re far from alone. Having spent years helping people collaborate more effectively, I was keen to find a solution that would simplify the process and make successful business collaboration straightforward for organisations at all levels.

It took several years of research and testing, but eventually I found it in the form of the ISO 44001 (formerly British Standards Institute BS 11000) – collaborative business relationships, and SharpCloud – a visual place to do business.

SharpCloud Visual Collaboration Platform

This is where SharpCloud is able to host and provide a visual collaboration platform that enables people to connect, communicate and collaborate effectively.

Collating and visualising data, into information that allows people to add commentary and context to create “new knowledge” in a continuous iterative process, supported by the ISO 44001 collaboration framework helps businesses to continuously improve and create new value.

Integrating Physical, Data and Digtal Collaboration to deliver a integrated visual collaboration approach

Integrated Visual Collaboration

The ISO 44001 Collaboration framework provides a proven way to help develop a collaborative organisational culture, peoples behaviours, processes and systems.

You can break this collaboration into three main types:

  1. Physical collaboration
  2. Data collaboration
  3. Digital collaboration

By integrating these three different types of collaboration together you create visual collaboration.

The model below shows Roelto Integrated Collaboration Approach whereby you can apply ISO 44001 collaboration framework and SharpCloud visual collaboration platform.
