Collaboration Accreditation Review (CAR)

Collaboration, Accreditation, Review

Shared services / collaborations are great ways for organisations to share resources in pursuit of similar goals and realise a whole wealth of benefits. How do you know if you're getting the most out of your shared service and whether it is performing at its best?

STAR, with Milford Research and Consultancy Limited, has created a new and unique assessment and ratings programme for collaborations and shared services, our Collaboration Accreditation Review ‘CAR’.

CAR is aimed at existing collaborations that wish to benefit from a completely independent assessment, providing you with a findings report, rating on which you can benchmark and promote your shared service, assurances, and an improvement proposal.
