Example text

One of the most urgent tasks for any manager is the resolution of conflict and change. This ‘takes up the largest single chunk of managerial time and energy, and is not always well done at the end of it all’ (Handy, 1986). Conflict is a tremendous source of dynamism and creativity within any organization (Pascale, 1990). Conflicting requirements will always need to be resolved in complex projects. Therefore, conflict cannot simply be dis-invented. Like cost, or time, the thing to be controlled is a resource to be expended as wisely and effectively as possible, not a phenomenon to avoid.

This is at the heart of the problem of managing design. It is why managers of the design process must understand the methods by which a typical design is developed, and the characteristics of the designers, in order to achieve a level of understanding that allows them to be sympathetic to the process. For the sake of clarity, only architectural design is examined in this section of the book. It is in this discipline that most of the research into the creative aspects of design has been carried out.

Specialist contractors make a significant contribution in both systems. In the UK it is to contribute manufacturing and technical knowledge to achieve perfection in the detailed execution of the design. In other countries it is to use the same knowledge, but within a broader framework that requires the optimization of the specialist’s inputs to achieve cost effective construction. This is an overall simplification, but it does have significant impact on the complexity of the design management problem during the detailed engineering stage.
