Design firms operate in an unpredictable environment. An unexpected issue on a project or a particularly difficult client can sometimes have a disastrous impact on firm profitability. These situations are often beyond the control of a practitioner. Bad things do happen to good architects, even when they follow all best practices. Nevertheless, it is still possible to improve profitability through taking action in arenas where firm leaders do have some control. This webinar describes four essential actions necessary to becoming more profitable -controlling scope creep, improving work processes, balancing staff skill with work types, and charging higher fees. Practical methods for addressing each of these issues will be outlined, including an introduction to important risk management and financial management concepts. By attending this webinar, you will earn 2 CES Learning Units.
