BIC Technical Implementation Clinic (TIC) Move Online

BIC is currently undergoing a Governance Review: The new governance framework must unlock a broader change across the organisation, to enable efficiencies, better ways of working, demonstrate value for its members and ultimately create opportunities for innovation.

BIC’s Strategy, culture, decision making, communication, people, process, tools and risk management are all considered as connected elements of a system. It is by changing elements of the system, in a coordinated roadmap that BIC can become a more streamlined, efficient and results driven organisation.

The BIC TIC has been identified as an area requiring a fresh, results driven approach and streamlining post Governance Review. As such BIC has moved this clinic to an online forum in order to provide a more agile/real-time way to manage technical issues raised by its members.

If you are from a BIC member organisation and would like to join the online forum or if you have any questions about it, please contact

Copies of previous sets of minutes from the previous Clinic format are available on request - to BIC Members only; please email to submit your request.
