This lecture will provide an overview of Dr. Leicht’s research into the evolving role of integrated teams in the delivery of building projects. The seminar will focus on presenting recent findings in procurement, using empirical analyses linking them to the development of integrated teams. Based upon these efforts, the influence of procurement approaches on project outcomes will be presented in light of the mediating role of teams. In addition, the emergent research and recent US industry trends Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) and the role of technology in supporting integrated team processes and communication will be discussed.

Bio: Dr. Leicht’s research purpose is to explore the integrated design process within the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction industry. Dr. Leicht uses organizational theory, information and process modeling, and communication theory to focus on the methods of assembling integrated teams and developing integrated processes with the ultimate goal of delivering high performance buildings. In addition to these research thrusts, Dr. Leicht also studies human factors for teams, concurrent engineering, building information modeling, and interactive workspaces in the context of supporting team communication, processes, and decision-making.
