This may be the beginning of a sea change in the way organizations are led and managed.
Naples, Florida (PRWEB) May 25, 2017
The International Collaborative Leadership Institute (ICLI) based in Naples, Fla. announced today it has become the first educational entity in the U.S. to develop a complete range of programs and assessments for organizations who want to attain “World Class” certification in Collaborative Business Management. ICLI’s programs in Collaborative Excellence are designed to support organizations seeking to meet standard 44001 recently announced March 27, 2017 by the International Standards Organization (ISO) in Geneva, Switzerland. This standard marks the first time there has been a common global framework which can be used to facilitate joint strategies and coordinated operations across and within organizations.
The ISO’s standard 44001 provides universal frameworks, standardized terminology, and assessments for collaborative engagement. The standard enables businesses, government, nonprofits, universities, health care systems, research collaborations and entire value chains with a unified methodology to deploy best practices for cooperation, alignment, alliance development, teamwork and trust building.
ICLI’s co-founder, Robert Porter Lynch, has been a thought leader and driving force behind the frameworks and practices that underpin the newly issued standards. “The ISO Standards of Collaborative Excellence represent the first time in the history of commerce that companies can verify the quality of their suppliers, customers and alliance partners,” Lynch said. “We know from years of experience that the best practices underpinning these standards triple the chance of a successful collaboration and we often see 20 percent improvement in competitive advantage and significant increases in profitability as non-value added work is eliminated and trust-based relationships generate new innovations, better coordination, and greater speed. Lynch added, “Future employees, particularly Millennials, will have a standard of excellence to assess their fit in an organization. Ultimately, this may be the beginning of a sea change in the way organizations are led and managed.”
ICLI has developed more than a dozen programs and assessments in Collaborative Excellence ready for implementation to support ISO 44001. Descriptions are available at http://www.iclinstitute.org.
