ISO 44001 Collaborative Leaders Course

Our Objective

The Collaborative Leaders Accreditation is to provide suitably qualified candidates with knowledge and skills of BS 11000, such that its implementation brings value to their organizations.


The BS 11000 is the British Standard that provides a strategic collaborative framework for organizations, based on ICW’s CRAFT methodology, to build and manage collaborative relationships so that the relationships are effective, optimized, and sustainable to deliver benefits for all stakeholders.
As BS 11000 has become increasingly recognized and adopted, ICW identified a significant need for organizations to develop internal champions/facilitators to lead and support implementation programs, who have the knowledge and skills so that organizations gain real value from the adoption of the Standard.

Who should attend?

Those who have been asked to lead manage or execute the implementation of BS11000.
