Uncut and in conversation With Sarah Hodge, Hodge Development

Sarah is a highly respected figure within the FM community and was central in the development of ISO44001 and its predecessor PAS11000.

For those unclear, ISO44001 is a Collaborative business relationship management systems, so naturally the Vested approach will be aligned to Sarah’s thinking. ISO 44001 is now aligned to the high level structure that covers some ISO management system standards, and incorporates the eight stage life cycle model created to help business partners maximize the value of collaborative working:

Operational awareness
Internal assessment
Partner selection
Working together
Value creation
Staying together
Exit strategy implementation

So what are Sarah’s thoughts and views on Vested, it’s long term potential and the challenges faced in ensuring that it does become accepted?
