On the Ballast ARE 5 Review Manual page 3-12, there's a statement regarding design assist contracting:
"The design-assist contracting method does take some additional work to make it effective. The owner
must develop a clear statement and scope of work, along with a budget and schedule."
However, in one of the Designer Hack PcM problems, the exact opposite was claimed, that the client does not need to have a clear understanding of the scope/budget/schedule of the project with the design assist method:
Which statement is true?? Can someone also kindly explain the rationality behind why a design assist method would have whether higher or lower requirement regarding owner's initial understanding of budget/scope/schedule? Thanks!
