JCP in the Water Sector

Collaborative Working in the Water Industry

A better way to success - we bring improved results to long and short term water programmes and projects.

Industry leaders are fixing the legacy of under investment or past bad investment decisions, while balancing the day job of meeting the needs of customer, stakeholders and shareholders. At the same time as addressing sustainability challenges and endeavouring to maintain an asset which protects the environment and makes a positive contribution to reducing carbon.

Which is why many organisations are recognising there is a need for greater collaboration in the water industry, both internally and across the supply chain.

The effort and passion which is enabling the shift to collaborative working and behavioural change is delivering a profound change in water industry performance; within and across internal teams, water companies, and complex supply chains.

JCP's strategies for performance improvement, team alignment and authentic leadership have, over 30 years, delivered better business success to a range of companies.

One of the reasons we created an alliance was because we wanted the benefits of integration with partner organisations to constantly drive us forward, bringing new ideas, new practices.

We've been able to challenge our alliances to deliver some fairly audacious goals; in a collaborative arrangement we get a constructive and progressive response, we don't get a defensive contractual response, and that's a fundamental difference.
