Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a specialized delivery approach that aims to bring together or integrate the people, business models, technology and methods into a particular procedure. This procedure makes it possible to harness the skills, abilities, experience and, the expertise of all the participating people. This is done in order to make sure that the project lives up to its full potential by exposing it to different teams, people and technologies.
IPD also increases the value of the project to the client or owner, it reduces waste and optimizes the effectiveness of models and structures. IPD is a procedure that is meant to be practiced and integrated into all phases of the project; whether it is scope defining phases, development phases or testing phases.
These IPD protocols and methods can be used to work on several kinds of projects and arrangements. The IPD teams are versatile as well, breaking away the traditional trio of client, worker, and contractor. In any case, integrated projects can be uniquely set apart by the efficient amount of collaboration among all the stakeholders in the project. IPD protocols are implemented from the design phase through to the project delivery date.
In traditional project delivery, communication is normally paper-based. The paper-based communication takes a lot of time and makes for a harsh and somewhat constricted professional environment. Other than that, communication is also wholly two-dimensional. The two-dimensional nature of the communication is not very efficient as it only makes two particular teams or people aware of a particular subject or progress. This may significantly tone down the achievements and progress of the teams as recognition across teams would be minimal.
However, with NYE integrated project delivery teams, the communication is digital and semi-formal with a work environment that seems to suit the needs of the team. This digital-based communication is meant to make the teams well-coordinated and well-connected with each other. The communication is also not two-dimensional making teams much more recognized and their milestones appreciated across the board by other teams as well.
The protocols involved in traditional project delivery is very linear and solid. The rigidness of these protocols makes the traditional project delivery somewhat difficult to live up to as they have strict standards. The protocols are also meant to be segregated from other protocols and processes which makes it harder to integrate them later or promote collaboration. Most of the information and data involved in the processes or protocols are hoarded up and doesn’t allow for cross-communication to other departments and teams.
The processes and protocols in NY Engineers IPDs are concurrent and have a multi-level hierarchy of data and information which makes them prioritized. The information involved in the protocols is shared among different team members and teams across the board in order to make them much more efficient. So, when the information is shared across the board to all the stakeholders, this builds trust and allows for transparency in the protocols.
In the tradition project delivery, the milestones and rewards involved in the projects are individually pursued which means that they are not given priority according to teams. This makes for a minimum effort team and project where individuals are appreciated more than the teams who helped build the project. This fuels unhealthy competition among team members who try to sabotage their way to the top.
At NYE’s Integrated Project Delivery, milestones and rewards are achieved according to the team’s performance. Whenever the team’s performance as a whole is given a reward. This makes the team’s performance better as people collaborate together instead of isolating themselves for more recognition. It also propagates the idea of sharing rewards and achievements.
The traditional project delivery standards manage risks individually and don’t acknowledge the risks involved in the bigger picture. These risks are then consequentially mismanaged and sometimes go on to become bigger risks and problems for the teams, the organization, and all other stakeholders as well. The risks are not provided to the teams in a manner which can make them aware of the risks involved in the project thereby limiting progress and exposing them to potential risks.
In our integrated project delivery techniques however, the risks are first assessed and then analyzed. Then they are discussed with the teams across the board in order to make them aware of the potential risks so that they can work towards minimizing those risks and work against them. This also makes for better team communication.
NYE’s Integrated Project Delivery Protocols are built on a collaborative framework on which trust is built between teams and program managers. Whenever the IPD is effectively structured, the trust-based collaboration encourages parties to help focus on the project results and goals. This is done in order to help teams prioritize projects over their individual and personal goals.
Without such a trust-based collaboration, the Integrated Project Delivery Processes will eventually fail. The stakeholders will also ultimately remain in a negatively affected environment. This negative impact can effectively ruin the industry from head to toe.
The Integrated Project Delivery aims to produce better outcomes through changes and collaborative work environments. Therefore, in order for the IPD to be successful, all the stakeholders and team members need to practice the following principles.
Mutual Trust : For an integrated project, the basic principle is definitely mutual trust between the participants of that project. The owners, developers, technicians, engineers, managers and, contractors need to understand and properly practice the principle of mutual trust and respect. Without any trust between the participants, it is practically impossible for the teams to work together for a single dedicated goal.
Mutual trust must be built up by team project managers and program managers. This can also be done by trainers and specialized personality building managers. The mutual trust is the core principle on which the projects are based.
Mutual trust is usually brought forth through other friendlier activities where participants essentially bond overwork or another kind of activities which involved their participation.
Early Involvement : Any project that undertakes integrated project delivery protocols as their standard, the key stakeholders are normally involved from the very early practice moments. Usually, project managers and program managers improve the decision-making process by reeling in all the opinions and insight of the key stakeholders involved. This is best for the project as all the people involved pitch in their solutions and ideas.
In the integrated project delivery processes, the brainstorming is done in a mutual meeting room where all the stakeholders or some few representatives gather to discuss the ideas, solutions and other parts of the project which are still pipelined. The early involvement and the vigorous communication of the teams helps to bring the entire team and all the stakeholders on a single page.
Mutual Rewards : NY Engineers highly believe that all stakeholders and participants take benefit from the Integrated Project Delivery processes and protocols. Since the IPDs involve early involvement by more stakeholders and partners, the compensation and reward structures recognize milestones and achievements early on. This compensation or reward is determined according to the value added to the project and the organization by that particular team or stakeholder. This reward is also sometimes compensated based on the behavior of the teams as well who show concern as well.
These rewards are necessary for trust building and building communication between teams and stakeholders. The organization effectively provides incentives and bonuses to teams working above the standard of the organization or the client’s expectation.
However, there is no concept of individual rewards unless this is a specific individual reward reserved for the individual such as holiday bonuses.
Collaborative Decision-Making : It is generally believed that innovation can be brought forth in a project and other endeavors through freely exchanging ideas in a productive environment. Ideas can be debated upon and made better through collaborative decision-making. This is usually done in large meeting rooms or smaller more casual rooms where the stakeholders mingle with each other to exchange ideas.
In the IPD, the ideas are judged and debated upon their merit, but not on the person’s status or their job description. Ideas have transparency and somewhat anonymity in order to limit any sort of discrimination. All of these decision and other major ideas are evaluated by the project managers and other higher authorities. This is only to regulate ideas that are worth the while and not just every idea which has not been probably debated upon.
Communication : The integrated project delivery processes and protocols allow for the project managers and program managers to focus on the team’s performance. This performance is based on the open, direct, multi-dimensional and honest communication protocols within the organization or team. All of the responsibilities of the projects are assigned without any tolerance for the blame game culture which is rampant in most other organizations.
All of the communication protocols and open communication allows for the identification of problems and finding their resolution. Once the teams are well-integrated and are communication professionally yet effectively, then there is no room for personal grudges or stagnant growth. Problems with the projects will be defined clearly early on and teams can collaborate to work towards making them better.
Any and all disputes within the team or with other teams are immediately identified by the project managers and other higher authorities. They are then dealt with accordingly in order to prevent the progression from going stagnant.
Planning Efforts : The integrated project delivery approach recognizes and acknowledges that increasing the efforts in planning the results and objectives of the project goes a long way. The project managers invest in planning processes in order to increase efficiency and time management efficiency later in the processes. Therefore, it can be said that the integrated approach aims to reduce the efforts in design and implementation phases later on in the development of the project. This is also done in order to properly improve the results of the design, streamlining the effort and also shortening it to some extent.
Leadership Roles : The project’s team can be thought of as a whole organization on its own as all the team members are fully committed to achieving the team’s goals and objectives. Leadership roles are taken by the team’s most capable individuals who are able to carry out all the protocols of the project planning process without fail.
In the Integrated Project Delivery protocols and processes, it is of utmost importance that the roles of each team member are defined clearly in order for individual work to be analyzed as well. The role of the leader is most important which is why it is important to clearly define the role and objective of the project manager and leader before starting the project.
