In this session we’ll challenge the hierarchical and conflict-laden process of typical construction and look at ways to form collaborative goals and relationships built on trust between ALL the people involved in a project. We'll begin with an overview of some of the common project delivery methods (design/build, design-bid-build, integrated project delivery) while highlighting the benefits of a more integrated team approach to the building process. Next we’ll break out into small groups to explore five different scenarios in which projects have "gone wrong" from various stakeholders' perspectives. These challenges will relate to budget, schedule, performance, design and communication. Each group will be assigned one scenario, then brainstorm strategies that could have prevented the problem from occurring. In the large group, we’ll share our solutions and collectively generate recommendations for building a high-functioning integrated project team.
