044: The 7 Threats to an Architecture Business with Rion Willard

In 2018 I interviewed 42 architects, archipreneurs and industry thought leaders.

Again and again the same themes appeared that I sensed were at the root of many architecture business problems.

Over the Christmas period, I spent a lot of time quietly reflecting and re listening to those interviews in order to distill what these industry experts were telling me they had found to often be some of the most challenging aspects of running an architecture business and what they have done to navigate around them.

From that study I compiled a list of 7 Business Obstacles that in many cases threaten and prevent otherwise successful and intelligent architecture practices from fulfilling in their mission of delivering impactful and meaningful design work.

They are:

1. CASHFLOW

2. LACK OF RESOURCE

3. NO MARKET NEED

4. DISCOUNTING TO WIN WORK

5. LACK OF LEADERSHIP

6. FEAR OF SELLING

7. LOSING TALENT

In this podcast I review what these 7 Threats are and how they can erode your business and I relay how many of the architects and industry leaders I have spoken with have overcome them.

Join us at U+I Offices where BoA UK will give you a roadmap around the 7 Most Common Obstacles (the 7 THREATS!!) to a Profitable and Impactful Architecture Business.
