Optimizing project value requires tight integration of building systems, processes, organizations, and information.  Based on experience from 100+ IPD projects, and augmented by project and behavioral research, the presenters will discuss characteristics of traditional project delivery that inhibit high performance.  They will also describe an outcome-based approach, built on The Simple Framework for Integrated Project Delivery, that creates the environment and provides the tools and processes required for project success.  Although an IPD structure is recommended to maximize value, the presenters will also discuss ways to import high performance tenets into other project delivery methods.
