Identification: WEB160210

Credits: None available.

Exclusive to members of DBIA, receive CEU credit for your DBIA or Assoc. DBIA certification by spending an hour with DBIA’s leadership on this special interactive webinar. You will go behind-the-scenes of the organization – your organization – and hear from the immediate past Board Chair, the current Board Chair, and the Executive Director/CEO, on the current state of design-build (market trends, legislative authority, design-build performance, etc.) what led us to our 2016-2018 strategic direction, and our immediate goals for implementing it. After outlining the strategic direction, these essential leaders of DBIA will take any and all of your questions live. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to ask Immediate Past Chair Peter Kinsley, 2016 Board Chair Bill Quatman, and DBIA Executive Director/CEO Lisa Washington questions on the future of design-build and DBIA.   

DBIA’s 2016-2018 Strategic Direction focuses on three primary areas: (1) Universalize Design-Build Done RightTM; (2) Leverage Existing Strengths of Design-Build; and (3) Deliver High Value to All Members and Customers. Now that DBIA has defined the attributes of Design-Build Done RightTM, we must continue the important work of educating industry on these attributes, defining performance measures, and teaching the “how to” of achieving optimal value for owners and design-build teams.   We look forward to answering your questions about the future of design-build and DBIA.

Understanding the New DBIA Code of Conduct

Identification: WEB170511

Credits: None available.

Beginning June 1, 2017, DBIA’s new Code of Professional Conduct will become effective. While all DBIA members are encouraged and expected to adhere to the Code, those holding the DBIA™ and Assoc. DBIA™ credentials will be subject to enforcement of the Code and possible disciplinary action resulting from violations of the Code. Since DBIA’s inception in 1993 our members have been dedicated to the highest level of ethical conduct, professionalism and service. With the increased use of design-build project delivery and the increased recognition of DBIA™ certified professionals, the professional conduct of DBIA members and, in particular, credential holders, is more important than ever.

In this seminar you will:

  • Discuss the importance of a robust Code of Professional Conduct to the design-build profession.
  • Review the key elements of the Code of Professional Conduct including the rules, comments and enforcement.
  • Understand the basis for a complaint and/or appeal.
  • Discuss procedures by which credential holders will be required to attest to their agreement of the Code.

Virtually any size project can benefit from the higher quality, time/cost savings advantages and risk management that design-build (DB) collaborative delivery provides. But is there a point where the implementation of DB just doesn't make sense for small projects?

Subject matter experts will cover small DB project essential concepts; procurement essentials and project delivery essentials with ample time allowed to answer your questions. Three small DB project case studies will be presented.

  • How to determine if a smaller project is suited to design-build delivery
  • The essential best practices associated with small design-build projects
  • The essential procurement and contracting concepts for small design-build projects
  • The essential concepts of small design-build project execution

Leadership Matters

Jan 31, 2018 1:30pm ‐ Jan 31, 2018 3:00pm

Identification: WEB180131

Credits: None available.

In the design and construction industry we have primarily focused on management as the predominant skillset needed for success. However, the old model of simply “planning the work, and working the plan,” is no longer all that is needed to success in our business. As an industry, we need to shift from being order takers, to being value generators, and that requires far more than management skills.  What is missing and needed is a new kind of leadership, capable of influencing and inspiring real change to impact the cultural traditions and behaviors that have hindered our industry and stifled real innovation for far too long. 


  • You will distinguish between management and leadership and learn why leadership matters most, especially today.
  • You will learn the five practices of exemplary leadership and why they make a difference.
  • You will learn what people look for in their leaders and how to develop those attributes in yourself
  • You will learn how to establish credibility as a leader, at every level, no matter what your current rank or position.

Leadership is essentially a linguistic phenomenon. Therefore, communication is the single most powerful tool that you have at your disposal when it comes to leading effectively. In this session, we will explore the various distinctions of communication from three perspectives—1) the human perspective or what gets in the way of people communicating in the first place, 2) the technical perspective which deals with the fundamental skills of talking and listening, and 3) the spiritual perspective which considers the purposeful and authentic intentions behind our communications.

  • You will recognize that there is common human phenomenon that impact our ability to communicate effectively.
  • You will learn that there is a distinct design to effective communication that can be learned and accessed to increase your leadership effectiveness.
