The Power of Small - embracing agility in practice to effect big change

Guerrilla Tactics is the RIBA’s flagship professional event for small- to medium-sized practices, which runs over two days: the first day is dedicated to a topical, business-themed conference; and the second day to a rich, jam-packed programme of CPD.

The Creative Director of the 2017 Guerrilla Tactics conference day is David Miller of David Miller Architects (DMA).

  • Conference Day
  • Speed-Mentoring Evening


Wednesday 15 November 2017:

  • CPD Day


The Conference Day - Tuesday 14 November 2017

In the current professional environment, when both technologies and market conditions are shifting fast, the ability to be agile and adaptable to change is the key to success. Small, light-footed practices have a unique competitive advantage over bigger organisations that are weighed down by existing processes and drawn-out decision-making.

As a small practitioner, how can you overcome the limits on your time and resources and turn size and deftness to your advantage? By becoming more efficient, is there a way that your practice can gain commercial benefit from what you are currently doing, so you retain more profit? Is it possible to not just to survive, but to achieve growth and profitability and punch above your weight?

This conference day is devised to highlight how small practitioners can effectively positively manage change and adopt new beneficial ways of working. There will be an emphasis on continuous bite-size improvement rather than wholescale transformation: identifying the right tools and processes that can make the difference. A session will also be dedicated to areas in which architects are expanding the scope of their services, gaining additional business by increasing their offer to clients.

Throughout the day, small practitioners will talk directly about their own experiences, highlighting what works and what does not, flagging up the tools and processes that have had a lasting beneficial impact on their practices – whether it is software for tracking fees and resources or a useful app. The conference day will provide a plethora of positive takeaways, offering a unique opportunity to learn directly from others’ innovations and insights.
