So, two or more contractors have come together, bid and won the contract; expectations were set early on and the client expects a seamless, integrated and united supplier organisation from Day 1 – the Joint Venture.
However, differing work practices and the organisational cultures of the respective JV members present huge challenges for effective working. Additionally, the situation is further compounded by unskilled behaviours which arise when the going gets tough – when under pressure, challenge of when being given feedback.
The JV needs to be ready and effective from Day 1 and working relationships between JV members need to be collaborative, innovative and strong.
High performance, challenging collaborative relationships rarely happen by chance. They need intelligent design and consistently applied and monitored interventions – but ones that are designed to fit the context in which you operate.
We have extensive experience working in these areas to help JVs succeed.
