Babcock Australasia is to join the ICW (Institute for Collaborative Working) Australia as an inaugural Executive Network Member and sit on the Institute’s advisory board, driving collaborative working across industry as part of a cultural approach to delivering complex programs and solutions through transparency, mutual support and shared benefits.
The relationship builds upon Babcock International Group’s founding membership of the global ICW – which was formed in the United Kingdom in 1990 – and it combines Babcock’s corporate experience of collaboration across its value-chain, with the domain leadership of the ICW.
Brett Ackroyd, Managing Director of ICW Australia, said, “Together, we will work to achieve our core vision of being the home of collaboration, where good practice is shared and supported with research, experience and training, and building a global community which recognises the development of skills and knowledge of collaborative working practices.
“Through our community, we will enhance the professional relationships of business, the public sector and wider society to produce greater value in the outcomes for all.”
David Ruff, CEO of Babcock Australasia, said “Collaboration is one of Babcock’s core values and it is the foundation of how we connect with our customers, industrial partners and wider stakeholders to deliver outcomes.”
“We are proud to help keep our nation secure, our communities safe and the country moving.”
