Abstract

Consultant management is a major challenge in most projects

Never the less, the challenge of managing a team of consultants designers developing, coordinating, and changing the design of a complex project can be staggering. Contractors often assume responsibility with design in its infancy and budgets already stretched. Designers come from multiple businesses and often have their own agendas, timelines, interests, and loyalties. As a design manager attempting to improve external designer performance, it can be hard to know where to begin.

Working closely with complex projects, we’ve identified common behaviours of designers which are most often the root causes of problems. In this whitepaper we explain each technical behaviour, and what you can do to improve or stop it. 

In the final chapter, we provide ideas on how to start promoting excellent management. We will give simple best practices and practical advice, using managing tips from the best high-level projects.
