Using BS 11000 to Collaborate Online

Wouldn’t you agree if you want to create collaborative relationships you need all the help that you can get?

Using BS 11000, a framework specification focused on developing collaborative business relationships provides you a step by step guide over 3 phases and 8 stages. One of the main outputs is typically a paper based corporate Relation Management Plan that captures the necessary polices processes and tools.

Although this is great help to start to your BS 11000 journey – a static paper based RMP is hardly very collaborative.

Now, discover how you can improve your BS 11000 implementation and management by using Roelto BS 11000 Online Collaboration Platform (OCP).  This unique service will help you to accelerate your BS 11000 implementation and improve the management of your business relationships both internally and with external business partners.

Below in Figure 1: BS 11000 Relationship Maturity Matrix, shows you one of the views that you can use to establish your maturity against each of the 8 stages aligned to the 3 phases.  You can use this matrix initially as an internal and ongoing tracker as well as for individual projects and business relationships.
