Vancouver Integrated Design Process: How to Facilitate an IDP

Community Event
Nov 18 2008 - 6:00am to 2:30pm

This full day workshop has been designed for people who will play a leading or support role in the facilitation of IDP and want to improve their skills and ability to design, facilitate, and enable this process. It will also assist project team members to make the case for IDP to their clients and colleagues, and develop methods to communicate the value of facilitation of IDP to a design team.

The workshop takes an in-depth look at the art and practice of facilitating the integrated design process. It will focus on IDP through the lens of facilitation in order to better understand the purpose of this role, how the - integrated design process itself is designed, the skills required for effective facilitation of IDP, and tools and strategies to use in the facilitation of integrated design.

The workshop explores the theory of integrated design, how it differs from conventional design, and how IDP can result in more cost effective, efficient, integrated and elegant projects. The workshop will draw on the experience of participants to explore the range of ways that IDP is used in practice, and the successes and challenges associated with different applications. It will also provide participants with the opportunity to learn and practice basic skills fundamental to effective participation in IDP. It is anticipated that participants will be people who are already working as IDP facilitators or wish to begin doing this kind of work, and will include a mix of designers, planners, project managers, owners, and facilitation consultants.
