September 2016 Sustainability Wins Lunch and Learn: Better Decisions Faster: The Social Science of Integrative Design

Share this event:

Teams often aspire to make better decisions, faster. The integrated design process, if implemented well, has the potential to simultaneously elevate the quality of decisions and expedite the decision making process. The primary reason for these failings is that the key ingredients are often missing.  Teams need the right mix of membership, structure and facilitation to realize the potential of integrative process.  We define what membership, structure and facilitation is needed for success. This session has been developed based on a research paper published by the Institute for the Built Environment; "The Social Network of Integrative Design."

Lunch provided by Serendipity Catering.
