The following aspects of integration should have been achieved during the Deciding to Alliance phase:
- Planning for an integrated delivery team:
- The proposed delivery organisation is highly integrated, recognising that in an alliance model the client team are part of the execution plan or project - not that the project is being transferred to a third party.
- ‘Best for project’ selection principles have been established, providing a clear approach of how teams will be brought together from across the Alliance.
- The environmental enablers for collaboration, such as co-location and collaborative systems, have been identified and are covered in an implementation plan.
The following case study provide a detailed look at how organisations have used alliances and the lessons that have been learnt.
