What is Construction Partnering?


The Process

Collaborative facilitation is a disciplined process by which a neutral professional facilitator brings team members, leaders, stakeholders, and affected professionals together to ensure alignment on critical non-contractual and work-life balance decisions throughout the life of a project or a change in the organizational mission and structure.  

The partnering process measures the interpersonal health of the organization, and can enhance communication, trust, strategy, change evolution and issue resolution— before disputes can arise.


Deliverables

  • Confidential interviews with team principals to include visible and invisible stakeholders

  • Confidential surveys to all team stakeholders based on principal interviews

  • Identification and management of unspoken issues

  • Assessment and reporting of survey results

  • Partnering follow-up communication and action items

  • Collaborative development of responsibilities, roles, and organizational relationships


What to expect

During the facilitation process stakeholders will address:

  • Formal and informal communications

  • Identification of conflicting team and project requirements

  • Project/Team mission statement, vision, and covenants

  • Periodic partnering health and reporting

  • Potential claim identification and avoidance

  • Monthly follow-up surveys, interviews, and formal reports on partnering metrics

Objectives

Participants will be able to identify visible and invisible stakeholders and support the team's non-contractual “most important requirements” that are necessary to ensure safe and cost effective project success. Roles, responsibilities, and reporting relationships are confirmed collaboratively, and the team’s organizational structure is endorsed by all stakeholders.

Complex team dynamics may also be evaluated and "360 Assessment" instruments (DiSC®) may be utilized to provide objective leadership feedback maps on inter-team communications styles and conflict resolution processes.
