This 90-minute panel discussion, moderated by Mark Cavagnero, FAIA, focuses on how small firms can broaden their skills and obtain larger commissions by teaming with larger firms. Based on decades of experience teaming with larger firms, the panelists offer candid advice about how to identify the right firms with whom to team, which projects are most appropriate for teaming, how to align cultures, how to make a smaller firm attractive to larger firms, how to navigate potential problems, what to consider when allocating scope and fees, and, of equal importance, when to run away from a teaming opportunity. Their insights will help your firm form valuable relationships and deliver better projects while saving you countless sleepless nights.

This program is part of the Growing a Small Firm series, created by AIA San Francisco and Mark Cavagnero, FAIA, designed to help architects and allied professionals who have recently branched out on their own, have a growing firm or are considering starting their own business. These best practice lectures bring together leading architects, contractors, engineers, and other design professionals for evenings of focused conversation and invaluable insight.

This course is presented in high definition video and is available on computers, smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices.
