The greater the importance of any initiative, the greater the need to collaborate.

Yet effective collaboration is complex, and never just about software tools.
In the new digitally connected collaborative age, established rules in business, leadership and management simply no-longer apply. Success today requires new (often counterintuitive) thinking and investment in people, platforms and processes to support new ways of working.

With relevant experience and expertise in global supply-chain improvement programmes, the Coplexia Collaborative framework and 'concentric' cooperating model was first setup in 2003 in response to EU Social Development Objectives calling for cooperation across industry, government and education.

Today the model continues to evolve and is proven to counter the common causes of collaboration complexities within and across the private, public and third sectors.

  • I have been nothing but impressed with what I have seen with regards to Coplexia's professionalism, business and technical acumen, and their ability to make difficult initiatives successful.

    Danny Ryan – Co-founder, ThreeWill

  • Coplexia Consultants alway took time to ensure that what they proposed met with our agreement and fitted our working practices. They didn't dictate the way we had to work-something we appreciated as frequently the IT 'tail' tries to wag the institutional 'dog'.

    Peter Arnstein – Partner, Bellamys Solicitors

  • Coplexia came into a very difficult situation and a project which was in a complete tatters. Within a very short period of time, they managed to put some structure behind the project and implemented a quick ready-made solution that has made keeping track of the project substantially easier.

    David Fretwell – Analyst, BP

We'll connect everyone and help them to cooperate, you'll improve performance by up to 70%.

Working together as Virtually ONE collaborative,
Coplexia Collaborative Business Readiness Assurance (CoBRA) programmes help senior executives and leadership teams succeed in their most important change & transformation initiatives, by controlling the complexities of collaboration.

The results are outstanding. We base our fees on them.

Coplexia Quality Management Systems (QMS) leverage virtual workspaces with related tools and templates to support improved ways of working across internal and Business-to-Business (B2B) collaboration-chains. Standard modules digitally connect and virtualise Supply-Chain Management (SCM), Programme Management Office (PMO), Digital Service Delivery (DSD) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) operational processes, and our Digital Value Reengineering consultants will ensure co-operational excellence.

Work Anywhere and BYOD capabilities--as standard.

Reliable resources to help realise the promise of prosperity through partnership.

Effective collaboration requires mutual understanding and trust.
These start with clear contextualised communication, and a synergic mind-set. Rather than "who needs who more", the most successful collaborators ask "what could we achieve better together?", then go on to focus their people, platforms and processes on that shared vision of success.

We hope the following features will resonate with your current or future needs, and for the opportunity to share supporting material with you, like lessons learnt reports and 'how to' guides.

So let's start a contextualised conversation today.

Helping the world's busiest airport prepare for its largest international terminal.

Change Programme Management|Transport

In the lead-up to Heathrow's Terminal 5 coming into operational readiness, BAA IT Applications and Support Services lacked confidence in their ability to identify and deal with the possible impacts of T5 on over 300 legacy systems across the BAA world. The senior leadership team recognised a need to change how they operate in order to cope with business-as-usual demands on top of mounting requirements from in major T5 construction and technology programmes, BAA transformation programmes and venture partners British Airways. Adding to the complexities was a 10billion GBP hostile takeover by Spanish consortia Ferrovial, a novel supplier contracting model that made BAA entirely accountable for the delivery of T5 (rather than any of its supply partners), and complex regulatory debates ranging from the usual HR challenges of TUPE to ground breaking decisions on such things as the implications of biometric measuring machines on human rights laws.

Watch Modern Workplace on The Evolving Role of Technology & Transforming Your Business

Report|Microsoft Business

In this episode of Modern Workplace on The Evolving Role of Technology, we came to you live from Ignite in Chicago where we, and over 22,000 technology and business leaders are focused on the rapidly changing landscape and the power of technology to empower businesses around the globe to achieve more.

Helping Peter and his team turnaround their law firm, saving employee jobs.

Business Turnaround|Legal Services

Coplexia helped turnaround a group of four independent law firms from the brink of collapse due to post-merger integration challenges, the economic downturn, an unprecedented hike in insurance premiums and the costs of pending regulatory change. Working with senior partners to develop a strategic roadmap for a return to profitability within 18 months, Amir designed and delivered a collaborative growth programme (CGP) that led to the transformation of the amalgamated firm into a 40million+ GBP legal practice which he went on to lead as Interim Director of IT & Operations in readiness for a single Alternative Business Structure (ABS) law firm coming into effect.

For the full story, we invite you to speak with Peter and his team on a site visit or conference call.

Helping one of world largest telecoms providers improve cyber resilience globally.

Programme Delivery|Telecommunications

As trusted advisor to the head of Hosting, Services & Security, Coplexia founder and Managing Partner Amir Khodaparast helped turnaround a portfolio of grossly delayed projects before driving transformational change to prepare the business for delivery of its 10Million+ Euro FY strategic objectives. Using the Coplexia CoBRA principals, tools and techniques, Amir achieved wide stakeholder buy-in to new ways of working embedded within a collaborative Quality Management System (QMS) with related SharePoint site, tools and templates to align and synergise several global programmes across the client's international operating companies as well as its largest global customer and supply partners. This strategy helped improve failing relationships that had threaded the loss of a major global account to the competition, while at the same time mitigated a major risk from a strategic supplier to turn an unexpected multi-million Euro operational expenditure (OPEX) into savings in capital expenditure (CAPEX) over a three year period.

For client confidentiality reasons, we are unable to disclose the names of the parties concerned, but if the scenario resonates and you'd like to learn to more, we'd be delighted to arrange an exchange of a mutual non-disclosure agreement to enable us to explore areas of common interest. At the first instance, please contact Amir directly for an exploratory conversation in confidence.

Helping a major Oil & Gas company prevent national catastrophe, avoiding global disgrace.

Programme Turnaround|Oil & Gas (Retail)

Following catastrophic failure of a highly reputational telecoms rollout pilot project, Coplexia led an expanded team of telecoms engineers to put the projects back on track at breakneck speed. We successfully recovered team moral, realigned senior stakeholder expectations, and won buy-in to a more effective approach to incident, configuration and virtual team management--resulting in four successful pilot runs ahead of a national rollout effecting c3000 UK service stations. The result? We helped save the client from reputational damage and multiple-millions in governmental penalties and end-of-life support fees imposed by a key supplier.

We did this all in just three weeks.

We've now prepared a similarly quick presentation deck to help tell the story, plus a short half-day workshop training course to reveal the secrets of our success. Request your FREE 15 minute 5-slide webinar today, and secure 10% off the price of the workshop normally charged at 3500 GBP (plus applicable taxes, travel & expenses) for up to 10 delegates.
