Setting up an alliancing culture
The role of the project integrator is critical to collaborative contracting. The project integrator works with the client to develop the overall project delivery plan. This includes designing suitably incentivised contracts for all project participants that clearly define their respective scope and deliverables in line with the plan. In short, the project integrator facilitates maximum collaboration between all parties by aligning all parties pain and gain share in line with the client’s goals.
Early-stage collaboration with the project integrator and concept design team can establish early control of project requirements to shape the incentives for project participants. This is achieved by setting up an alliance culture combined with a comprehensive management plan and structure from the outset of a project.
