Why do architects sometimes make insufficient profits out of their projects? It is tempting to blame others, such as the client who dithers and asks for changes; the team which isn’t quite of one mind; the planners who take too long; or, possibly, the perfidious contractor. However, it is architects, who are very often the team leaders, who are ultimately responsible, and so it is really up to them to put their project and team together in a way that is resistant to these problems.
This seminar will take examples from the group of problems that can undermine our projects and:
- Analyse them and their origins
- Look at ways of avoiding them
- Explore ways of working with them, if they are unavoidable
- Consider more effective ways of selecting and composing the team
- Introduce processes that can keep us out of trouble.
Although a complex subject area, delegates will be equipped with the fundamental knowledge to analyse their projects, and discover ways to start the process of improvement, with reference to specific hints provided in the seminar.
