What ICS-Network Is All About
ICS-Network is an association of seasoned, fully-vetted Construction Project Time Management Consultants from across North America who synergistically benefit themselves and those who hire them through collaborative association.
Warranted by ICS-Global, all products and services provided by ICS-Network Affiliate companies carry performance guarantees to be timely, cost-effective, thorough, and professional. To ensure compliance with ICS-Protocols standards, all products and services will be supervised and managed by IQ Consultants (ICS-Qualified), who are professionals that have been certified to possess the highest levels of construction planning and scheduling skill, knowledge, experience, professionalism, honesty, and integrity.
Why ICS-Network Was Created
Back in 1975, what was meant to be Project Manager varied by industry, geographic region, and company practices, individual skill and training, and so forth. Frustrated by this pig-in-a-poke situation when having to hire a Construction Manager or General Contractor, a handful of Fortune 500 companies founded the Project Management Institute. A primary goal was to bring consistency and standardization to the field of Project Management.
Fast-forward 45 years and the ICS-Network development team recognized the same challenges with respect to Construction Project Time Management. The solution was the ICS-Protocols, a seminal work that standardizes terminology, roles, principles, processes, procedures, and ethics codes.
To become an ICS-Network Affiliate, an existing Construction PTM consulting company must pass financial, legal, and character background checks, and must have and maintain on their staff at least one IQ-Consultant. Every IQ-Consultant must complete an exhaustive Eligibility Screening that effectively eliminates all but the highest scoring, most qualified construction planning and scheduling practitioners.
All Network Affiliates agree to: (a) pre-negotiated billing rates, (b) share business leads and opportunities, as well as joint venture, with other Network Affiliates, (c) defer to ICS-Global in disputes with ICS-Network clients over products and services produced by Network Affiliates, and (d) abide by the ICS Code of Standards and Ethics.
