ICW Collaboration Groups

A primary aim of the Institute is to work with our members and wider interest groups or communities to encourage and support thought leadership, develop and promote new collaborative concepts and to be a prime mover in increasing sector and cross-sector knowledge sharing, innovation and collaboration, to generate better economic and social outcomes.

Our Special Interest Groups have been conceived to focus on specific and relevant collaborative topics, either relating to how organisations or people can build capability, or where there are particular potential drivers that can been benefit from collaborative working. Whereas our Sector-based groups/forums are much more sector focus, where we want to be enablers for greater levels of sharing and cooperation, with collaborative outcomes in mind.

Please note: access to these pages is only available to members of the respective groups; i.e. members of each Collaboration Group, not ICW Members (unless they are also members of the group).

Special Interest

We have established 6 Special Interest Groups to share and develop topics that are of key interest to members. The Groups are a way to be involved in the life of the Institute and help it move forward thought leadership and practical experience drawn from our members. Currently the groups are focusing on driving internal changes to enhance members' benefits, increasing the focus on people skills, the future of Collaboration, as well as key areas where collaboration can have major impact.

Each Special Interest Group has its own dedicated page, on which the group members can use the in-built Forum to ask questions, air ideas, and generally discuss their area of interest, and there is also a repository of files relevant to the Group.

Membership of ICW Special Interest Groups is open to all individual members, as well as nominated representatives from Executive Network members. In exceptional circumstances, non-members can apply to join, but this will be subject to approval by the ICW CEO. If you wish to join any of these groups please contact Adrian Miller at the ICW office and he will get the SIG lead to contact you to discuss the matter and/or membership further.

Collaboration in public procurement is gaining increasing importance and recognition. Multiple benefits of collaboration in procurement can outweigh the risks, such as prolonged periods of national austerity, commercial relationship challenges and the inconsistency of procurement approaches.

The group explores how it can help ICW membership apply structured collaboration effectively to get the most from their collaboration strategies. The SIG has a wide-ranging remit, from codifying the different stages of development and implementation of structured collaboration, as evidenced by the promulgation of the collaboration pathway 'travelator', to providing advice on more specific principles and requirements.

Brings together an expert group of our members, including leaders, academics and seasoned practitioners; to focus on how collaborative working, its thinking and practice, should and can evolve to meet existing, emerging and new challenges. Its key aim is to promote and advocate collaborative working, to increase interest and demand by highlighting its full potential and extensive range of benefits.

Sector-based

We have identified, alongside some of our key Executive membership, that there is a strong desire to work better together within specific sectors on key matters to generate better outcomes. This approach is not intended to in any way undermine or neutralise market or competitive effectiveness or efficiency, but it is seeking to benefit from sharing insights, more joined up thinking, increasing opportunities to innovate as a group ad raising the level of performance of the entire sector.

Each has its own dedicated page, on which only the group members can use the in-built Forum to ask questions, air ideas, and generally discuss their area of interest, and there is also a repository of files relevant to the Group.

Membership of these Groups is restricted to the Sector and access will be determined by the Group Lead. If you wish to join any of these groups please contact Adrian Miller who will ask the Group Lead to contact you to discuss the matter and membership further.
