In the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic, being forced to work from home could be one of the best things that could ever have happened to your business.

This presentation shows you exactly why and how remote working arrangements can improve your business

About this lesson

Are you a MAKER or a MANAGER?  As architects, we expect ourselves to be both, but most of us are not both.  If you clearly understand where you and your colleagues’ abilities lie on the maker/manger-scale it will greatly influence your working environment.

You will learn to identify exactly what YOU are good at and outsource the rest of the work effectively.

In this course we discuss to do the following:

  1. Identify what part of the Standard Architectural Service you are best at.
  2. Understand your strong- and weak points as an architect. Are you a Maker or a Manager?
  3. Interrogate the situation of your own practice.
  4. Understand your work-force
  5. Implement proposed actions. Experiments you can try on a small scale at no cost.
  6. Consider what the architectural practice of the future will look like and plan accordingly.

What you'll learn about:

  • The difference between MAKERS and MANAGERS in architecture
  • Exactly how to outsource work
  • Using your team’s strong points to achieve more
  • In depth knowledge of the modern workforce
  • Identifying exactly where in your company the changes are needed
  • What was wrong with the way we used to practice architecture
  • Setting up mutually beneficial parameters for flexi-time
  • How to ensure you continue to get high standards of work from your employees.
  • Dealing with ‘replaceable’ team members
  • Every deal can be renegotiated
  • Practical, short experiments you can try – at no cost
  • Using feedback to optimise your systems
  • Rearranging your office spaces
  • What the architectural team of the future could look like
  • Selling architecture in smaller pockets
