Using examples from a range of different architecture practices, readers will learn how these organizations have successfully approached the issue of people management, by implementing tried and tested HR models. Aimed at sole and small practices , this easy to digest book shows architects and other design professionals that HR can be a positive, profitable and even pleasurable tool for business success.
