Meeting the Challenges of Collaborative Working

Taking the decision to work collaboratively or to develop alliances is not always an easy decision to make. While the benefits are clear, sometimes there can be challenges that get in way of successfully making the leap.

Hear from senior leaders in some of the UK's top infrastructure companies about how they successfully made their collaborations work to bring about some of the most successful projects in recent times.
