Welcome & Introduction

Welcome to this autumn edition of Collaborative Insight, whose main article features the very successful Collaboration and Smaller Businesses event.

This event was sponsored by Kier who are doing ground-breaking work with their smaller business community. Establishing greater engagement with Smaller Businesses is a major ICW objective which we aim to address working with Kier and others to build on their experience.

The ICW collaborative business relationship with Kier also involves working together to expand our joint Collaboration training offerings. Readers will be aware that Collaborative Training is a major growth area for ICW which will benefit greatly by the active involvement of Kier.

Continuing with the Training theme, this publication includes articles on a Training course in New Zealand and an in-house Collaborative Leaders course with Leonardo. It also features the latest University of Warwick based Collaborative Leaders course, this renowned course goes from strength to strength. As I write the January 2019 Collaborative Leaders course is fully subscribed and we already have bookings for the March course.

This publication includes a report on the latest ISO 44001 Technical Committee meeting held in Shenzhen, China chaired by David Hawkins. This has huge potential implications for ICW - readers will note that this meeting reinforced the ICW smaller businesses involvement objectives.

Finally I would draw you attention to the article on the ICW involvement in the major Highways England A14 project - if you want to know more, e-mail David Hawkins.

ICW welcomes two new members to the ICW Executive Network: Jacobs, the huge engineering/technical professional services enterprise, and Serocor, the human capital solutions group.

The next ICW event is the Annual ICW Collaboration Awards, sponsored by BSI, at the House of Lords on 13 December. This will be my last ICW event as after 17 years at the helm of ICW (and PSL before) I will be standing down as CEO. I am delighted to welcome Claire Ward as my successor who I am sure will take ICW forward – onward and upward.

Allow me to take this opportunity to wish all ICW stakeholders every possible success in these challenging times. I have no doubt that a collaborative approach will enhance your chances of success!

Good luck and best wishes,

Les Pyle
Chief Executive
