The Integrative Design Process (IDP) has the potential to radically change the way that decisions are made in building design and construction, and to improve project success and efficacy. However, integrative design projects often fail to realize success because optimal team structure is not achieved. How can we create and facilitate successful teams?
In this video course, we differentiate between traditional design processes and an integrative project process; offer a sharp, new understanding of team integration; and provide clear steps to optimize facilitation of project teams. Through interviews with team members of a successful project, we present principles of high-performing teams, present the potential challenges and offer tips to a successful integrative design process.
This course has been developed by design professionals and social scientists at Colorado State University’s Institute for the Built Environment (IBE). Here at IBE, we got tired of watching project teams struggle and decided to determine the ingredients for success. This course presents the outcomes of our research of successful project teams and team network structure.
