This chapter focuses its discussion on the talents and human-capital contribution made by teams engaged in integrated project delivery (IPD) and alliancing projects in particular, (henceforth we refer to IPD alliance). It is concerned with defining and discussing the desirable qualities that people working on IPD-alliancing projects need. The way in which those qualities are developed is the subject of the following chapter. This chapter presents the ‘what’ and ‘why’ story while the next chapter discusses the ‘how’ story. Selecting people with the right skills, knowledge, attributes and experience (KSAEs) is very important to enable positive and successful project outputs and outcomes. It is also important to understand how to create a workplace atmosphere that supports people to effectively use their KSAEs. Chapter 12 discusses the ‘how’ story in terms of staff recruitment and development and Chapter 10 explains IPD-alliance workplace culture aspects to add further to our understanding of the ‘how’ and ‘why’ story as context for this chapter.
