About The Institute

Les PyleClaire Ward, Chief Executive
David HawkinsDavid Hawkins, Chief Operating Officer & Knowledge Architect

The Institute is the thought leader for Collaborative Working following the development of the unique CRAFT methodology/portfolio based on the collective experience of the Institute’s Executive Knowledge Network. As a totally self-financing, multi-tiered membership organisation the Institute provides practical guidance from extensive experience gained from working across relationships within the commercial, Government and academic arenas. The Institute was established in 1990 as a joint initiative between the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) now BIS (Department for Business Innovation and Skills) and the CBI (Confederation of British Industry). The Institute’s role is to establish collaborative working as a professional business discipline and help organisations, large and small, in both the public and private sectors, to build and develop effective competitive business relationships based on collaborative working good practice.

The Institute is focused on knowledge transfer through a broad range of training and development offerings supported by academic research and a portfolio of thought leadership reports. The Institute was the driving force behind the development of ISO 44001 Collaborative Business Relationship Framework, the world’s first International Standard in relationship management.

ICW Executive Network Benefits

The business benefits of ICW Executive Network membership can be summarised as:-

Thought leadership

Since its inception the ICW Executive Network has harnessed and mutually benefitted from the experience and foresight that has lead the way in developing collaborative working. It is this forward thinking that has supported and contributed to the development of BS 11000 and its migration to ISO 44001.


The ICW Executive Network provides a neutral networking platform between its executive members. These can be formally facilitated or more informal links that enables executives to share ideas, issues and opportunities within a collaborative environment.

Knowledge Sharing

Through the Executive Network ICW runs a number of Collaborative Working knowledge sharing events focused on a variety of topics chosen by the membership all with a business relationship ingredient. These events provide platforms for networking and the sharing of knowledge/experience in an open nonthreatening, non selling environment (Chatham House rules apply).
