Collaborative business relationship management systems can deliver a wide range of benefits to enhance competitiveness and performance.
ISO 44001 started life as PAS 11000 Collaborative business relationships. The PAS was published in November 2006.
It became a British Standard, BS 11000, in 2010 and now, it has evolved into an international standard to help organizations, large and small in both public and private sectors, to build and develop effective competitive business relationships based upon a collaborative approach.
The standard is applicable to private and public organizations of all sizes, from large multinational corporations and government organizations, to non-profit organizations and micro/small businesses. It can be used to manage relationships on several different levels whether your needs focus on a single application between operating divisions or more complex relationships like consortia and joint ventures.
