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, 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.
