Description

The Handbook of Practice Management is the professional architect’s business management bible. This new edition is fully up-to-date, reflecting the new RIBA Plan of Work 2013 – the industry standard framework for running projects – as well as the latest contemporary architectural practice management techniques.

Divided into three parts – focussing in turn on the industry, the practice, and the project – the handbook provides a fresh perspective on familiar topics, combined with insight into many new directions in practice management that can give any practice a cutting-edge, commercial advantage.

With useful pointers throughout to the many services provided by the RIBA and other industry organisations, the guidance covers education, setting up a practice, professionalism, law, financial management, people management, risk management, QA, IT, marketing strategy and winning clients, alongside innovative topics such as knowledge management and BIM. There are also thought-provoking sections on contemporary issues and future trends such as sustainability and the global context.

A must-read for all architects – whether sole practitioners or those working in small, medium or large firms – and with a clear, accessible layout and no-nonsense style aimed at busy professionals, this is the ideal companion to running a modern architectural practice.

Customer Reviews

Graham Bizley

Date Reviewed: November 2018

Content is broad-ranging and covers all aspects of running a practice. For the small practice, or new practice starting out, the text offers a concise and insightful introduction to a more professional way of thinking about practice. It describes ways of working and things we should be doing in a clear and approachable way. Business and management concepts are presented in a way that is specific to architectural practice, as opposed to more generalised advice found online or in general books. The book is very easy to navigate, with a clear structure and clean graphics.

James Summerfield M. Ed, BSc (Hons), MCIOB, FHEA Course Leader BSc Construction Programmes, University Centre Blackburn College

Date Reviewed: December 2014

From an undergraduate point of view this book can viewed as a useful resource for those entering the architectural sector. The chapters are structured in such a way that clearly defines the particular aspects involved in the architectural practice. As a lecturer involved with the design aspects of construction I can envisage that undergraduates will find this to be a useful resource, more so for those who are involved particularly in architectural courses.
