Communication and collaboration are two important elements that make a strong team and promote innovationIn IPD, the key project stakeholders with the highest probability of impacting the project’s success are focused, as a team, on one common set of project goals. One multi-party agreement exists for key project stakeholders, their profit is at risk based on their success and there is a shared reward if the goals are surpassed.

IPD has four fundamental differences from traditional project delivery methods:

  • Early involvement of key trade contractor participants
  • Cross-functional teams which include designers, contractors, suppliers, and others to drive collaborate solutions
  • Multi-party agreement supporting collaboration and fostering ownership
  • Shared risk and reward among IPD team members
