In 2008, IBACOS founded the Best Practices Research Alliance (now the Housing Innovation Alliance) to foster innovation among leading homebuilders and manufacturers and promote widespread adoption of best practices. The Alliance represents IBACOS’ belief that the best ideas for driving innovation come from collaboration among key stakeholders in housing.
To this end, Alliance members represent every aspect of the housing value chain, including some of the most forward-looking builders, developers and suppliers in the industry, and some of the sharpest minds in sales and marketing, architecture and design, land and community development, finance and appraisals, business and quality management, technology, home performance, real estate, sustainability and other key disciplines.
With 5 key knowledge areas, Evolving American Households, Comfort + Health, Cost of Quality, Industry Game Changers, Internet of Things, the Alliance engages some of the best and brightest minds in honest discussions, to openly share successes and failures, and work together to “connect the dots.” What makes the Alliance truly unique is members’ willingness to openly share their best practices, business concerns and intentions for the future… asking tough questions and providing honest answers in return.
