The Origin of I-LinCP
by Carol M. Warkoczewski, AIA, Founder and Chief Vision Officer

I conceived of the LinCP Forum in early 2008 as I contemplated the question, "What would it look like if the key stakeholder constituents involved in capital projects got together to talk about contemporary design and construction issues in a collaborative way?"

You see, as an architect, project manager, and executive at various architectural firms and the University of Texas System, I was involved in the conception, planning, design, construction, and management of many major projects.  As well, my work as a consultant and project process facilitator has brought me into the midst of the planning and delivery of over 80 wide-ranging capital projects.

During the process of Partnering, the key project stakeholders discuss project goals, team values and behaviors, effective communications, expectations, and project issues, but always focused on a specific project.  So, I wondered if it would be of value to invite a "few" of my clients and project participants to a "conversation" that was industry-focused, rather than project focused. As I bounced this idea off some of my clients, I received warm encouragement.  Thus, the first Leadership in Capital Projects (LinCP) Forum was born.

After the first LinCP Forum in February, 2009, I was encouraged to form a nonprofit organization and to take the Forums around Texas. The Institute for Leadership in Capital Projects (I-LinCP) was formed as a Texas nonprofit corporation in January, 2010 and gained nonprofit 501-c-3 status in May, 2011.

We now have I-LinCP chapters in Texas, and expect to go nation-wide in 2015, spreading our mission to:

Evolve the capital projects industry through sharing of knowledge for optimized leadership, delivery, and performance.

Thanks for your support!
