1 Integrated Model of Facilitation Components

Integrated Model of Facilitation Components

Facilitation, animation, and coaching are three crucial components within the construction industry, particularly in the context of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) processes. These components serve different purposes but are often interconnected, enhancing collaboration and project outcomes. This paper by Monette, Coulombe, and Drouin provides a deep dive into the distinctions and integrative aspects of these three practices, proposing an integrated model that can significantly improve collaborative project execution.

The integrated model proposed in this paper combines these elements to provide a comprehensive approach to facilitation. The model suggests that successful facilitation involves:

- **Preparedness and planning**: Ensuring facilitation is thoughtfully planned and contextually appropriate.

- **Dynamic interaction**: Engaging participants through effective animation tactics that foster interaction and communication.

- **Mentorship and support**: Coaching teams to foster professional growth and enhance performance.

This framework not only delineates the roles of facilitation, animation, and coaching but also emphasizes the importance of flexibility and the ability to transition seamlessly between different facilitation components. The authors suggest that mastering these transitions is key to maintaining impartiality and effectively supporting collaborative processes in construction projects.

The insights provided in this paper are invaluable for practitioners and researchers aiming to optimize collaboration and project outcomes in the construction industry. The integrated model serves as a robust framework for enhancing the effectiveness of project facilitation, promising improved project performance and success.

1 IPD: Performance, Expectations, and Future Use

IPD: Performance, Expectations, and Future Use

Effective project delivery meets or exceeds owner’s expectations for schedule, cost and quality. There is an emerging body of research that shows more collaborative/integrated delivery is more likely to lead to successful outcomes and high-level team performance. Within that context, this survey takes a snapshot of current perceptions of effectiveness on projects using multiparty agreements, the most formal and contractually binding of the integrated delivery methods.

1 Owners' Perceived Barriers to Adoption of IPD in Canada

Owners' Perceived Barriers to Adoption of IPD in Canada

While IPD is emerging as a viable delivery model in the industry, with success stories from Canada and around the world, some Canadian owners are hesitant to give it a try. This study presents the research findings of a study investigating those owners’ perceived barriers to adoption of IPD as a delivery model on their construction projects. The reasons are complex but can largely be distilled down to a set of six perceived barriers, explored in detail in this report.

1 Quantifying Performance for the Integrated Project Delivery System as Compared to Established Delivery Systems

Quantifying Performance for the Integrated Project Delivery System as Compared to Established Delivery Systems

Because IPD is becoming increasingly popular, various organizations are expressing interest in its benefits to the architecture/engineering/construction (AEC) industry.This study fills that missing gap by evaluating the performance of IPD projects compared to projects delivered using the more traditional design-bid-build, design-build, and construction management at-risk systems, and showing statistically significant improvements for IPD.
