architecture

As the top managing partner executive of an architecture or engineering firm, you face a wide range of responsibilities on a daily basis. Whatever the macro environment, it is up to you to create new opportunities and seize the initiative.

It’s not easy when the rules are constantly shifting: how do you best harness new technologies, adopt new processes to improve service delivery and reduce costs, market and sell more effectively, leverage social media to create quality leads and create a culture of accountability?
