The Authoritative Manager's Guide.

Downloadable PDF version, $200; spiral-bound manual version, $225.

A detailed how-to manual; includes case studies on A/E fee estimating, fee negotiation, and methods of timely fee collection. Tells how to explain and justify fees persuasively to clients.

This exclusive manual reveals every trick in the book for effective fee calculation and negotiation, and how to avoid nonpayment and get paid on time--everything they never taught you in school. AIA and Guidelines Surveys show that HALF of all projects in A/Es' offices either lose money or barely break even.

During recessions, the percentages are even worse. Well over half of project work loses money, especially as projects are stopped midstream. The losses start with inadequate fee negotiation and continue with poor billing practices.

This manual covers every aspect of fee estimation, fee contracts, and billing practices. It describes the most common errors and shows how simple changes in fee management will save you many thousands of dollars every year.
