Procuring for Collaboration on Projects webinar

Ensuring great collaboration between project team members is hard enough without having contracts and procurement processes in the way. How can you manage the dilemma of collaboration and value? This webinar was held on 24 March 2021.

Good teamwork lies at the heart of successful project management, and collaboration between team members is a critical success factor for teamwork.

Many common approaches to procuring the goods and services required to deliver projects can often seem to be pushing in the opposite direction.  They often reward selfish behaviours more than collaborating with others on the team to achieve the overall project objectives.

In this webinar, Ian Heptinstall shared a few experiences of working on projects under more collaborative contracts, which sparked discussion and debate with attendees.

Ian Heptinstall is co-Chair of the APM’s Contracts and Procurement specific interest group (SIG).  He is a lecturer in project management, and course leader on the Masters in Industrial Project Management at the University of Birmingham.

Ian has very kindly allowed his presented material to be made available for viewing. The slides on Slideshare and the webinar recording on YouTube is now available in our APM resources area and also embedded below for reference.
