To support people, organisations and business to understand the value of collaboration and the benefits achieved through collaborative working.

Special Interest Groups

ICW has initially established 12 Special Interest Groups to share and develop topics that are of key interest to its members.

The Groups are a way to be involved in the life of the Institute and help it move forward with thought leadership and practical experience drawn from its members.

Currently groups are focussing on driving internal changes to enhance members' benefits, increasing the focus on people skills, future of Collaboration and also how best to engage with the SME community. A full list of the current groups and their SIG Lead follows.

Membership of these groups is open to all. If you wish to join any of these groups please contact Alan Maund at the ICW office and he will get the SIG lead to contact you to discuss the matter and membership further.


Our Communications SIG focusses upon supporting the ICW and its members in creating, promoting and driving engagement in what we have done, are doing or events we have planned to further promote and advocate collaborative working.

ISO 44001

The objectives of this SIG are to collect and collate feedback from the marketplace, ICW member companies and ICW Branches on potential changes and recommendations based on practical application of the ISO44001standard. This group will engage with and utilise the vast experience of these ICW member companies and branches to register their thoughts for change on each section of the standard. The team will be setting up a data collection tool of frequently asked questions on the ICW website to capture and register any ideas, thoughts or suggestions – positive and negative on each section of the standard. This data will then feed into an ICW member guidance document or white paper, listing positives and possible changes or amendments to the ISO44001 standard. This will go directly to the ISO committee via Paul Greenwood and will influence the next version of the standard which currently is due in 2023.
