The Strategic Forum has produced an action plan to promote supply-chain integration.

The plan, by the forum’s integration task group, proposes a variety of initiatives. These include using 10 projects from public and government clients, including the Olympic Delivery Authority and Defence Estates, to showcase best practice.

The task group will also identify a “Gang of 10” senior industry champions, prepare a module on collaborative working for construction degree courses and update its integration toolkit.

Martin Nielsen, the group’s chairman, said there was “insufficient promotion” of the business case for integrated working across the industry.
