FOREFRONT: LEADING COLLABORATIVE ARCHITECTURAL PRACTICE. Ryan E. Smith et al. John Wiley & Sons, Inc., Hoboken, 2017. 288 pp. ISBN 9781119169246 In English.
Publisher's description: Forefront: Leading Collaborative Architectural Practice is the leadership handbook for today's design and construction professionals. Endorsed by the American Institute of Architects, this book describes the collaborative approach to leadership that is becoming increasingly prevalent in modern practice; gone are the days of authoritative "star" architects -- today's practice is a brand, and requires the full input of every member of the team. This book builds off of a two-year AIA research project to provide a blueprint for effective leadership: the ability, awareness, and commitment to lead project teams who work together to accomplish the project's goals. Both group and individual hands-on exercises help facilitate implementation, and extensive case studies show how these techniques have helped real-world firms build exemplary success through collaborative teamwork and leadership. Highly illustrated and accessible, this approach is presented from the practicing architect's point of view -- but the universal principles and time-tested methods also provide clear guidance for owners, contractors, engineers, project managers, and students.
