1.  Technology assessment for small firms

I am developing a program to help small firms maximize the use of software and technology in their practice. I'm looking for five firms to pilot test a technology assessment service I'm planning to offer.

This free assessment will look at all aspects of technology usage in your firm including your computers and network hardware, your design, accounting and productivity software as well as your workflows for accomplishing various tasks. Through an in-depth phone interview and some follow-up emails, I'll provide you with a comprehensive written assessment of your current technology usage as well as a road map for maximizing the benefits of technology in your practice. In exchange, you'll provide me with comments and feedback to help me develop the assessment.  

I am a registered architect with 15 years experience. Over the course of my career, I have worked at a variety of firms including, most recently, Gehry Partners in Los Angeles. I have always had a strong interest in design and technology and my roles within firms have often bridged both the IT and the design worlds. As such, I have a deep understanding of how architects work and how technology can best be used to make that work more efficient and more effective.

If you're interested in participating, please email me at In the email, include your firm name, firm size (solo practitioners welcome) as well as the region where you practice.

Thanks for your help.
