we were never taught anything about or how to manage the client's expectations!

Ron Geren

A great suggestion! Is there anything specific you had in mind?

Ron - I can't remember learning anything at all about how to run a business (marketing, accounting, etc.), which seems would be worth at least a mention in a practice management course. Since most of my career has been in the employ of others it hasn't mattered a lot. Or, perhaps because that wasn't mentioned in the curriculum, I've steered myself toward being employed by others.

Hi Ron,
How important it is to write a comprehensive scope of work for architectural services, and review the contractor's agreement for its scope of work on behalf of the owner. Many disputes can be defused quickly if we take the time to write a thorough scope.
