BS 11000

Collaborative Business Relationships

Improve communications and collaborate more efficiently with business partners

The BS 11000 standard is a Collaborative Business Relationship System that can help you develop effective joint ventures, particularly with supply chain partners. It provides you with the tools you need to access new services, improve contract opportunities, and combine resources. Implementing this Collaborative Business Relationship System can support your growth strategy.

Why should I apply for BS 11000 certification?

The BS 11000 standard can help your business by improving communications with your business partners. It shows you how to define roles and responsibilities with partners, which will strengthen your business relationships. This in turn will enable you to collaborate on projects more successfully.

Clear communications can help you improve efficiency and drive business growth. The BS 11000 requirements include refining your decision-making process to enable you to share skills, knowledge and resources more efficiently. This will also strengthen your risk management procedures, which can help control costs.

Here are some benefits of using the BS 11000 framework: 

  1. Mutually beneficial collaboration with business partners
  2. Improved decision making through clearly defined roles and responsibilities
  3. More efficient sharing of skills, costs, risks, and resources
  4. Wider training opportunities for employees
  5. Better business relationships leading to improved results.

Gaining BS 11000 certification will clearly demonstrate to your business partners your commitment to transparency and good governance. This reassurance can help you stand out in a crowded market and win new contracts. Improving efficiency will also enhance both your competitiveness and your long-term performance.
