The Architect's 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 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.
