The definitive guide on what the future holds for architecture and engineering firms and the design industry.
Every day, we are inundated with headlines telling us about change. At an ever-increasing pace, everything about how we interact and do business seems to be at play. But, rarely is there an opportunity to understand specifically how change will impact the A/E/C industry. Even more importantly, rarely is there an opportunity to hear from a leading industry voice on what you need to be doing now to survive and thrive in the change that is coming.
In this book, PSMJ Founder and CEO Frank A. Stasiowski, FAIA looks at our world today and details 10 “earthquakes” coming to the design profession by 2020. Like the giant plates under the San Andreas fault, the forces are building now for massive earthquakes that will shatter the traditional design industry as we know it today.
- No more employees
- No more drawings
- The death of the medium-sized firm
- And more...
Impact 2020 demonstrates how the emerging influences of globalization, sweeping demographic changes, and the ever expanding role of government in both public and private sector construction projects can benefit or seriously hamper firms that do not have a coping plan in the next decade.
Did you know that in the A/E/C industry of the future, you are going to have to have a variety of relationships beyond employer-employee to deliver design services? Did you know in the decade leading to 2020, you’ll see diverse kinds of employment—full-time, part-time, hourly, off-site/home office workers, strategic alliance partnerships, etc.—all of which will come together to get a project done?
The predictions that Frank made in the ‘80s, ‘90s, and ‘00s have nearly all come true, and the naysayers from back then are long gone. Stretching the mind to grasp your inevitable future is a scary proposition, but holding onto the past results in certain failure.
With Impact 2020, you get immediate actions and strategies that successful firms have already taken (that you need to know NOW) to succeed in the next decade!
