The Institute for Collaborative Working (Wales) - ICW (Wales) is the representative office for ICW based in Cardiff, South Wales. We are a self-financed, not-for-profit organisation. ICW (Wales) was established by ICW in 2012 with a focus on enabling smaller businesses to gain the business growth benefits from effective collaboration. Collaborative Working is recognised by businesses in Wales as a fundamental business discipline leading to innovative practices and more sustainable business growth. ICW (Wales) connects with Welsh Government, business support agencies, private and not-for-profit organisations.

Our Aims

  • ICW (Wales) supports individuals and businesses in Wales to become leaders in effective Collaborative Working
  • Disseminate better working practices through the principles of the International Standard (ISO 44001) so that Wales may become a more competitive nation and growth economy in developing a more collaborative and inclusive business community
  • Promote and support the adoption of a structured methodology for reducing supply risk and more effectively managing business relationships

Our Approach

We use specifically ICW qualified personnel and supported by experienced thought leaders in collaborative working from across the ICW community. Our key priority in Wales is knowledge transfer. We act as the essential linchpin between the growing international ICW knowledge network and businesses in Wales. We offer a range of support and for those interested in understanding more about collaborative working skills we direct them to the right training where needed.
