Using information technology to sharpen your firm's competitive edge

Design firms that achieve a competitive advantage through information technology are those whose leaders take direct control of the application of IT to business goals. In this book, design technology consultant Kristine Fallon tackles the IT management problem head-on, with techniques, tools, options, and decision-making structures that help you become the master of your firm's technological destiny.

Addressing AEC firms of all sizes and specializations, The AEC Technology Survival Guide forges a link between information technology and the two most compelling management concepts of our day --reengineering and total quality management. Numerous case studies demonstrate the measurable benefits of a well-planned technology strategy and illustrate the possibilities and pitfalls that accompany real-world implementations. A discussion of specific classes of technology products and how they fit into business strategies culminates in an inside look at the leading-edge, high-reward strategy of one of the world's largest design firms.

This indispensable guide:
* Lays out the who, what, when, where, and how of effective technology training for design firms
* Provides proven techniques for controlling IT support costs
* Explores the pros and cons of IT outsourcing
* Reveals techniques for analyzing and optimizing the IT budget
* Reviews technical standards and developments likely to shape future design applications.


Whether you're the sole proprietor of a small single-discipline practice or principal in a large design-build firm, The AEC Technology Survival Guide gives you the information you need to transform your IT from a necessary evil to the engine that drives your firm to success.
