10 money saving measures that could backfire - costing your project and company

I’m sure at some stage we’ve all had a construction project that no matter what we did, or how hard we worked, the project was doomed to lose money. Month end cost reports just brought more bad news. Our bosses were grumpy and usually blamed us...

Good post Gert Scholtz. I was lucky in my advertising career to have only ever had to get involved in a few of these things. Creative people are hired because they are self-contained brainstorming sessions. The most people I ever brainstormed with was one. My partner, and even then not always. The few that I did attend were exercises in futility, or designed to involve the client and keep them happy. Thank God there were goodies on the table. The best clients I ever had where the ones who always said these four words...."You're the creative expert".

Phil Friedman Thank you Phil. I take note of your insightful comment: The research cited overlooks a critical component of successful "brainstorming" sessions: There must be a moderator who takes the ideas mentioned and makes them his or her own pro tem. He or she then pushes the "envelope" with those ideas, calling for more and more outrageous support and accepts the open criticism as a lightning rod invites lightning strikes. It is only when a solution or solutions emerge from the freewheeling discussion and are brought to some level of maturity that the moderator returns ownership of them to their originators. This is the only way to work around the natural inhibitions present in group effort.

Why do Architects prefer curves and Engineers love straight lines?  In a couple of recent posts, some comments by Ken Boddie made me think about looking into this a wee bit further.  Many designers don't use curves because they are complicated,...
