Description

The essential resource for becoming more effective in the highly competitive architectural marketplace

Handbook for the Architectural Manager offers architects a comprehensive resource that brings together critical information on four interlinked areas: managing the architectural office, projects, stakeholders, and learning. Unlike other books on the topic that only stress management of the business or the management of projects, this book offers a guiding framework that encompasses the architectural manager's role in developing the practice’s competitive strategies and overseeing the project portfolio.

Written by noted experts in the field, Handbook for the Architectural Manager is grounded in current research in which, for the first time, the components of architectural management have been analyzed systematically, tested, and developed for practical application. Designed to explore typical architectural management issues, the book provides clear and concise direction with practical step-by-step guidance as well as helpful checklists, templates and scenarios, and case studies to illustrate best practice. This essential resource:

  • Offers a groundbreaking handbook that contains a comprehensive management framework for architectural practice
  • Contains new insights and guidance based on solid research on managing the architectural practice
  • Brings together in one book the best management techniques of the office, projects, stakeholders, and learning
  • Includes a well-grounded critical review of the existing literature on the topic
  • Designed for professionals in the field but written in accessible language suitable for students

Handbook for the Architectural Manager offers a practical guide for overseeing the development of architectural designs and associated activities and ensuring all work is consistent (i.e. adheres to current standards, legislation, client specifications, and office protocols) and completed on time as well as information on staff development and learning.
