Architecture can be a high risk and low-income profession. Planning to manage risks is essential. Workloads tend to be cyclical and managing lean periods and booms whilst being prepared for the next downturn is a key requirement.
This book is a how-to guide to build business resilience into your architectural practice, offering methods for managing business-critical events and crises. It shows you how to analyse trouble, pre-emptively tackle pitfalls and gives you confidence in decision-making to stay ahead.
Featuring case studies with expert insight into sole shareholder and director experience of a small practice, it's aimed across all levels with straightforward, honest and accessible advice.
It is structured with people and organisations as the core framework, exploring practice, staff, clients, projects, consultants and providers. It provides operational advice on the day-to-day running of practice and how to respond to disruption.
