As mentioned we only participate in collaborative engagement projects if the companies and themes were already prioritized by our PME engagement policies. As such there is no difference between evaluating the insights gained from individual and/or collaborative engagement trajectories. MN sets for all engagement activities specific milestones and goals, and tracks its progress continuously.
For instance in the case of collaborative work with the PRI working groups, we see similarities in the way the working group is evaluating companies and the way we would assess the company according to PME policies. In there is an established match, it makes sense for us to join the PRI working group and also adopt the existing PRI scorecard as the basis of setting milestones and goals. As such, collaborative engagements are registered and tracked in the same database as individual engagements. However, if there exists a difference in opinion, our individual assessments will always prevail any collaborative assessments. The way we work on collaborative engagement projects is that we agree on assessment methodology, we conduct meetings together, but eventually all parties involved are always entitled to their own opinions and (final) evaluations.
