ICW Members Drop-in Q&A Sessions

These sessions, which last about three-quarters of an hour, are facilitated by a small team of experts who have either advised on, helped develop or implement structured collaboration.

The sessions are structured around 'Frequently Asked Questions' (FAQs) received from our members on ISO 44001, as well as an open session for current member topics.

The sessions are usually held on the third Thursday of every month.


These drop-in sessions have specific themes, which we publish here and in our bi-monthly newsletter 'Insight'.

(Due to the potentially sensitive nature of the issues discussed, participants are free to use the information received, but must not disclose the identity or affiliation of any of the session's other attendees).

Part 1: Frequently Asked Question

The Structured Collaboration SIG has collated and prioritised a number of FAQs received from members. In this part we provide general feedback on how a practitioner might address the question and then conduct a discussion with attendees for further views and inputs. This part of the Exchange Session is allocated about 25 minutes.

(Although our experts are extremely competent, they cannot provide a definitive opinion on all topics as other considerations are likely to apply, such as the organisational and commercial context of the topic).

Part 2: Open Questions

This part provides an opportunity for attendees to propose a question or issue for discussion on the day. One of our experts will 'chair' this to generate interchange from members and our experts to share good practice, potential solutions, or create topics for future information exchange sessions.

Who are these sessions for?

The sessions are suitable for anyone, in any organisation, involved in developing or implementing a structured approach to collaboration and learning more about both the principles of ISO 44000 and/or the requirements of ISO 44001 and how they can support better collaboration and a more effective approach.

How to attend

These drop-in sessions are held online using Microsoft Teams. You will be able to register for each session separately in the Events section of our website. The link for each session is sent out usually within 24 hours of the start, so if you would like to attend, please make sure you are receiving ICW emails (if you are not receiving our emails, and have checked your Spam folder and firewall settings, please email Alan Maund for assistance).
