As we endeavor to work toward a Living Future, it is imperative we pause before jumping head-first into our projects. Designing a successful “Project Process” is the true first act of designing our future environment. We can approach designing this process through creating a vision and goals representing all stakeholders and then communicating those to everyone affected with the intent to make others champions of that vision. In this session, we will unpack how, what and why you can create an inclusive process. Attendees will participate in exercises to explore empathy and collaboration to realize our ambitious project goals.

This session will take a critical look at the conventional procurement, design, and delivery processes of our building projects and tease out areas of deficiency as well as waste. In so doing we will confront challenging existential questions of how and why we work a particular way:

• What and where is the cost and influence of a designed process?
• What does a collaborative and inclusive process look like?
• Why does a particular process succeed or fail?
• How can we better assess a project at its outset to foresee and avoid process conflicts?

We have come to pragmatically resign ourselves to the process of design and building being long, laborious, complex, costly, stressful, and difficult. Inherently though, building should be a joyous act – a marker of progress, hope, and potential! By changing and designing our approach to process we can return empathy, collaboration, and enjoyment to the important work we are embarking on together.

This session is approved for the following continuing education credits:
  • 1.25 LFA credits
  • 1.25 AIA LU|HSW credits
