Welcome & Introduction

Welcome to this the summer of 2017 edition of Collaborative Insight, which features the annual ICW House of Lords Collaborative Working reception, as well as the most recent Collaborative Working themed event addressing Utilities sponsored by EMCOR at the Crystal in London Docklands.

Since the publication of ISO 44001 in March this year the level of interest in Collaborative Working has grown significantly globally.

This interest manifest itself in the general increasing level of contact and specifically Executive Network membership and demand for training.

ICW is delighted to welcome five new Executive Network members:-

  • Ayesa from Spain - focused on Engineering and ICT
  • Aberdeen University
  • Bouygues UK - in Construction and Engineering Services, part of the huge French enterprise
  • LRQA - a major certification assessment organisation
  • SVGC – a professional services organisation

Featured in this publication are details of the delivery of ISO 44001 Collaborative Leaders courses in New Zealand and Australia – more expected.

Demand for places on the Warwick ISO 44001 Collaborative Leaders course continues to be strong with the next course in September.

ICW is in the process of establishing a number of Collaborative Special Interest Groups to drive specific actions in a number of key areas. The first will address Collaborative Working for Smaller Businesses and will be led by Dr Andrew Dixon from SVGC. The next will address Attitudes & Behaviours building on the 2016 Warwick Business School research project addressing the Psychology of Collaboration.

Other Collaborative Special Interest Groups will be established to drill down into detailed issues for specific key collaborative topics. ICW will communicate the outcomes from these groups as they mature.

Finally please ensure you have the next two ICW 2017 events in your diaries:

  • Collaborative Working in Aerospace on 12 October at the RAF Museum, Hendon, sponsored by LRQA.
  • The Annual Collaborative Working Awards on 12 December at the House of Lords, sponsored by BSI.

Suggestions for themes to address in 2018 are most welcome.
