How to challenge the "existing paradigms about the practice of architecture in the coming decade"

This week starting on Wednesday (Nov 2nd-4th), I am fortunate and honored to be given the opportunity to attend the Practice Management's Conference, Architecture Exchange (ArchEX) East as an AIA Knowledge Scholar. I recognize this as a unique and excellent platform to voice commitments as well as sentiments with a focus on Practice Management as it relates to the AEC industry. I feel the responsibility to share with my closest peers, the complex ideas that will be discussed on challenging the "existing paradigms about the practice of architecture in the coming decade".

I will communicate the day-to-day events that include keynote sessions, panel discussions, one-on-one interviews, 60 educational sessions, spectacular behind-the-scenes architectural tours, engaging special events, casual conversations, and evening exchanges on some of these topics:
  • The realities of starting and operating an architecture practice, from start-up to marketing and business development
  • Analyzing the risks and rewards of the marriage of BIM and IPD
  • Statistical data related to claims and suggestions on ways to manage the risk
  • Proven strategies to retain and provide advancement opportunities to valued women professional employees preventing female “brain-drain” in architecture firms as well as understand why in Fortune 500 companies only two percent of CEOs are women, and change that.
  • Find out what it takes to make strategic planning work for an architecture firm, provide meaningful tips for participants involved in the planning process, and identify common pitfalls to avoid.
  • Ownership Transition process and the tools necessary to begin – or improve – that  process in your own firms
Join the discussion and follow along by “liking” the AIA Practice Management Knowledge Community Facebook page today.

Please use me as a voice and avenue to bring your thoughts and ideas to ArchEX. In return, I will give you a play-by-play experience of what is transpiring during the conference.
