Identifying the right stakeholder
Select contractors that are willing to be transparent and share the risk and rewards of collaboration. Contractors must have the expertise to steer a project towards efficient delivery and positive outcomes. Clearly define project roles through contracts that can be established between each party and the client, with horizontal agreements between stakeholders for joint works. Effective collaboration requires a shift in culture and attitudes from traditional contractual behaviours. This can be made effective through workshops and training of resources to educate the stakeholders on collaborative practices.
