How can you actively manage design quality while leading a profitable practice?
Future-oriented practices leverage business systems as integral to achieving their design ambitions.
This session explores how architects can build design quality while ensuring the commercial viability of the practice. The design process will be matched with business strategy to provide learners with concrete ways of resolving tension between creative and business objectives. The impact that key business areas – talent, finance, operations, and business development – can have on design will be explored with the overarching view of demonstrating how each can preserve, strengthen and build the design ethos of a profitable, competitive architectural practice.
Key learning points:
· Approaches to promoting design ethos in every day practice
· Integrate business functions to improve design outcomes
· Build a practice culture aligned with delivering high standards of design
· Practical examples of how design and business integrate – harmony and conflict
