Architectural Design Process: Managing Time (Tools + Tips)



14 tools and tips for architects and students to better manage their time throughout the design process. At the end I discuss my fee structure and how I use it to manage the project schedule too. I cover the following concepts – as they relate to architecture – in detail:
1) Time boxing
2) Significant vs. Urgent
3) Tracking
4) Invented deadlines and disincentives
5) Pomodoro technique
6) Pareto principle
7) Templates + systems
8) Organization
9) Working time
10) Saying “no”
11) Notifications
12) Getting (un)stuck
13) Perfect vs. Good
14) Fees + Scheduling
I hope these strategies help you to be a better architect, student or designer! Cheers…
