CIOB Facilities Management Promotes Partnership

The Chartered Institute of Building’s Facilities Management Group in conjunction with Partnership Sourcing Limited (PSL), is launching a seminar about the new British Standard (BS11000) Collaborative Business Relationship Management

The seminar will be of interest to facilities, estate, property, finance and procurement professionals who have responsibility for facilities management services from a client and service provider perspective.

BS11000 represents a landmark for business as the first national standard to address business collaboration. PSL has been a driving force in promoting collaboration between organisations and has played a key part in developing the new standard.

Steve Harrup FCIOB Chair of the CIOB Facilities Management Group said, “Partnerships are a key element to the successful delivery of facilities management services. The new British Standard (BS11000) Collaborative Business Relationships represents a landmark for business as the ?rst national standard in the world to address business collaboration.

“Our seminar will give an insight into the standard and its implementation by the leading practitioners in the field, which should give service providers, consultants and clients the ability to measure their current performance and provide a clear framework and opportunities for the future”

The seminar will be held on 29th May 2012 at the CIOB Headquarters in Ascot, Berkshire and will demonstrate the attributes of BS11000 and its implementation via case studies. The seminar costs £75 per delegate and will include lunch and networking opportunities.
