What is Broken? Why are we here talking about and hopefully learning about Integrated Project Delivery?
How does an IPD solve the issues confronted in the delivering Professional Design Services
Basic IPD Concepts – Presented
1. Commercial Terms – Traditional Contract Forms vs. Relational Contract Forms – AIA C 191, 195 Consensus Docs. 300 & 305
2. Organization – “Culture Change”
People must be willing to learn – that is, think and work differently. Leaders must be willing to risk change
3. Operating System – Technology – Both BIM and Lean – Process Management. Processes must be made transparent to all and a collaborative environment established either in real time or virtually.
What are the obstacles to overcome the challenges of a shifting away from the traditional siloed approach to an Integrated project delivery approach implementing and delivering today’s Professional Design Services?
Finally, What does success look like?
