Who we are

The AIA Project Delivery Knowledge Community (PD) promotes the architect’s leadership role in all project delivery methods by assembling and distributing knowledge and best practices for a variety of project delivery methods, e.g. design-build (DB), integrated project deliveries (IPD), and public-private partnerships (P3).

The call for volunteer terms starting in January 2024 is now open! Learn more about joining the PD leadership group, or learn about other volunteer opportunities across the organization.

Commitment-based Project Delivery: Effective New Strategies for Building Team Cohesion

By Robert Lewis Bostwick FAIA posted 11-02-2016 11:58 AM


On Thursday, November 3rd, I will be giving a presentation with my partner, Pam Neckar, at the Texas Society of Architects' convention in San Antonio. We will illustrate processes and techniques that architects can use to build a cohesive, commitment-based team, measure its performance, and motivate it to succeed. (See below.)

As part of our continued research on effective methods and tools for building high-performing project teams, I would welcome any thoughts and experiences from members of the Knowledge Community on the topic of effective team integration. As we continue to develop this topic of architect-led team development, I would appreciate any references to articles or other resources that would add to future presentations.


Commitment-based Project Delivery: Effective New Strategies for Building Team Cohesion

Thursday, November 3, 2016 | 1:00-2:30 PM | 1.5 LUHs

To improve outcomes, first start by designing team performance into the project delivery process. This session will focus on whole-team strategies that foster group integration and maximize critical success factors such as cost, quality, and schedule. Four strategies will be presented and discussed in detail:

  • Appreciative Inquiry
  • Team Development
  • Lean Pre-Construction
  • Design Assist
