Cabinet Office Collaborates with ICW

Cabinet Office logoCabinet Office Project and Commercial Delivery Week – 24th to 28th November 2014

As part of the ongoing reform agenda in the Cabinet Office, ICW and BSI were invited by Dr Peter Walmsley to participate in a focussed week of events which highlight the importance of project skills in delivering policy objectives. This was to support the internal improvement and development of skills in project delivery. Cabinet Office joined together with their commercial colleagues in Crown Commercial Services in recognition of the fact that successfully delivery is a 3-legged-stool of project, commercial and policy skills.

This was a great opportunity for us to get across the critical importance of collaborative working as a key ingredient to successful project delivery and how BS11000 Collaborative Business Relationships can help support their objectives.

This was followed up on the 27th December where ICW's David Hawkins was invited to give a talk at the Cabinet Office to representatives of their Policy team, Programme management, HR and the Next Generation Shared Services Team. The aim was to broaden the awareness of BS 11000, its development towards ISO 11000 and the countries involved as well as providing examples from MoD, US Department of Defense and Network Rail on how adoption of the frame work helps to put a robust approach behind Collaboration.

Mark Sewell (ICW & Chair ISO11000 Panel) and Carla Whyte (BSI) set up a joint stand on 24th November at 1 Horse Guards Road (HM Treasury Building) and engaged with many of the internal government agencies and bodies that develop policy. We were able to share some of our experiences from major project management in practice and how the structured approach of BS11000 can deliver real tangible benefits. We had some interesting discussions so watch this space!
