One of the biggest economic trends already taking place is collaboration and sharing. Yes, I know this is well underway and frankly old news. What I’ve yet to see is the collaborative wave to be truly maximised on within traditional large corporates. Like many of you, I’ve worked both on the organisational and supplier side of programme delivery and continually find that contracts get in the way of doing the right thing. The best programme deliveries have been those where the contracts are either put to one side (sorry procurement!), or done in a way which enables the people to work together as a team and all focus on the outcome.
