Benefits of Using Integrated Team Tactics on Design Projects

KAOD’s project process benefits from the Whole Project Design method further by requiring the application of Integrated Team Tactics. This is the ongoing process in which the design team and identified client representatives work together throughout the project phases to evaluate the status of progress for functionality, creative problem solving, aesthetic quality, future flexibility, spatial efficiency, overall environmental responsibility, schedule continuity and potential cost impacts.

Ongoing Team Involvement Benefits Collaboration

Continued team involvement will allow for constructive criticism and problem avoidance measures that can only increase a project’s success and value to the client. Continued collaboration will allow for the appreciation of the previous design processes and confirm the implementation of suggestions from stakeholders throughout the process. It will also permit well thought out solutions when the inevitable unexpected challenge is realized.

Clear Communication is Key

Included in the realm of concern is a proper evaluation of stakeholders’ perceptions of the project’s progress and value, whether based on the actual process or other outside, unrelated influences. Continued collaborative activity will maintain communication from various interested parties. It will allow for the controlled dissemination of accurate information in effort to reduce distractions of inaccurate information being passed among less-involved parties.

Updates to Stakeholders Encourages Successful Outcomes

To create a successful high-performance project, this interactive approach within the design phases and project execution process is compulsory. Its success is based in achieving the goal of all the stakeholders having an appreciation of, if not fully understanding, the issues and concerns of all relative parties. Beneficial collaboration and interaction throughout all phases of the project as they are appropriate will encourage the creation of an exceptionally successful project.
