Leadership and Management in Architecture Design

Leadership and Management
in Architecture and Design
Success in the practice of architecture, interior design, land-
scape architecture, or any of the related design professions
requires more than design skills. It demands leadership and
strategic thinking. It requires an ability to identify goals, to
persuade and lead others, and to manage and direct organiza-
tions and events.

    11. 11. I wanted exactly: “business plan and architectural firm” which gave me zeroresults. And then just “business plan” which gave 1000s of articles. The keysearch: “business plan” firm. The term “firm” seems to mean one working unitof people forming a common business.Limiting the search to Peer Review greatly limits a search as does restrictingthe date of publication and remember that you can usually select thisinformation from the main search screen or in Advanced Search.Sometimes you can go directly to the full text article but for researchpurposes it is best to look at each record individually where you will see: theabstract or summary of the article, how to cite the article, email, print or savethe article. You can also get full text, from this screen by selecting “Get atKU”. Questions? Email Lissa llord@ku.edu 11
