The Institute for Collaborative Working (ICW) together with Warwick Business School and BSI hosted the UK launch of the new International Standard for Collaborative Business relationships at the SHARD, attended by over a 120 representatives from across the public and private sector where there to celebrate the publication of ISO 44001 which sets a new standard in collaborative working.

Lord David Evans, chairman of ICW, heralded the publication of the standard as a significant step forward for the institute who have been the thought leaders and driving force since the concept of a systemic approach to collaboration was first published as the CRAFT methodology in 2004 and went on to become BS 11000.

Les Pyle, ICW CEO, thanked the BSI and the members of the Institutes Executive Network for their support and contribution to the development of the standard. The journey to international recognition began in 2003 when ICW identified the evolving role of collaborative business models, though our initial aim was and remains to promote the value of collaborative working.

David Hawkins outlined how the process from BS 11000 to ISO 44001 had enable the international team to draw on the UK experiences with BS 11000 and refine the standard including integration with the ISO high level structure.

Frank Lee, Director at BSI commented: “The new standard had been developed in consensus with individuals around the world including industry, academia, government and the ICW to ensure that it adds value and addresses the key issues around collaboration. It will help to ensure that organizations have best practice systems and processes in place for effective collaboration in modern business.

The event provided the opportunity to publish the latest research of Warwick Business School commissioned by ICW 'The Psychology of Collaboration' by Dr Mark Johnson, Dr Mehmet Chakkol and Dr Max Finne, which we anticipate will support organisations in their requirements to recruit, assign and develop individuals to work in collaborative arrangements.
