BIW Foundations is not an alternative to all the work undertaken by existing industry organisations and trade bodies. Rather, it is a means of interpreting and applying it in the contexts that actual practitioners, across the industry, consider appropriate. It provides a complementary way for the wider community of practitioners and subject matter experts to collaborate, while encouraging them to problem-solve.
Importantly, the structure of the Community, will allow practitioners to ignore current barriers and processes and, if needs be, re-engineer the way things are done.
BIW Foundations will formulate and manage this cross-industry response.
