Maximizing Success of Integrated Teams
Univ. of Colorado / Penn State CIC Project
This two-year study was funded by the Charles Pankow Foundation and the Construction Industry Institute. The resulting process is based upon an empirical study of more than 200 completed building projects. Using several rigorous statistical methods to gain a full understanding of the projects and relationships contained therein, the main finding of the research was that project delivery decisions could not be made independently from one another. The organizational structure, procurement processes, and contractual terms need to be designed in concert, as a strategy. In particular, the research found that those strategies that aligned the project team, through both integrated processes and development of a cohesive group, were the only means for achieving project success – cost, quality, and schedule performance.
