Description

This special bundle combines two books in the Creative Business Essentials series at one unmissable price

Financial Management

Most newly qualified architects have scant knowledge about the practicalities of running a practice and in particular the challenges of managing the financial side of the business.  This book highlights the major financial risks and how these can be avoided. The chapters give straightforward advice and practical solutions based on the author's years of hard-won experience. Friendly, clear and concise, it will give you all the knowledge and tools you need to plan for business success.

Based on the original Good Practice Guide, this updated and re-designed version is now even more comprehensive and contains detailed information on fees, as well as real life anecdotal advice from practitioners, updated references, and is in line with the latest legislation. 

This is invaluable reading for sole and small practitioners of architecture and other creative industries.

HR for Creative Companies

This book provides simple, pragmatic and practical advice, anecdotes and template documents for a variety of common situations that arise in the HR employee life-cycle, such as succession planning and staff engagement.  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. 

·         Unique Structure:  focussed around the employee lifecycle, including the points of interaction with the market place; delivered in small/short bite sized chunks for easy consumption by busy professionals

·         Pedagogical Features: The use of key term boxes, chapter summaries, etc., all make the book more readable and useful.  There will also be the use of graphics and illustrations to ensure maximum engagement from visually orientated readers

·         Relevance: Case studies from the industry, illustrations that are specific to the architecture profession.  Also, specific theories and models that reflect on the profession

·         Pragmatism/commerciality: Focus on solutions and what architects can do to get the most out of their team and their business
