Seven Pillars of Highly Successful Architecture Firms

1 x AIA Credit Offered to All Attendees Courtesy of BQE

Culled from experiences working with more than 3,000 AE firms over 25 years, this session will examine the seven common denominators of every successful firm. Success comes in many flavors. For some, it’s money; for others, it is peer recognition, awards, or fame; for most of us, it’s having access to challenging or exciting projects.

Regardless of how you measure success, adopting these Seven Pillars will help you create the framework from which you and every member of your firm can achieve their professional goals.

Learning Objectives

In this webinar, you'll learn how to:

  • Apply your AE talents to your business and turn your firm into the most exciting project of your career.
  • Integrate your people, processes, and tools to create the perfect triangle.
  • Create and manifest your business and strategic plan.
  • List the three essential qualities which turn individuals into leaders.
