A methodology that could be recognised and used amongst organisations which we already had an established level of trust and therefore could rely on each other to reach common goals.
The Common Business Platform (CBP) was formed as the framework to deliver this, led by The Claxson Group and underpinned initially with its trading entities it introduced the trusted organisations within its network to each other at appropriate times in order to reach common business outcomes.
