The VIP FrameworkTM provides a method for embedding collaborative working to improve business, programme and project performance. It is enabled by facilitation, training and advice to change the culture, mind-sets, and behaviours to do things differently or better.
The VIP FrameworkTM is a partnership between RIA and Sigma to embed a collaborative approach and drive improved performance in the Rail Industry. The approach is proven over 15 years and continually updated in the light of Rail Industry requirements e.g. the McNulty report encouraging partnering to improve performance. VIP is governed by an Industry steering group comprising: RIA, HS2, TfL, Kier, Carillion, Alstom, ATOC, Future Railway, Network Rail. It is Sigma’s practical implementation of ISO44001 within the rail industry.
