"Little G" project delivery methodology, Gensler
While at Gensler, developed, tested, refined and implemented a new project delivery model to reach previously untapped entry-level start-up and non-profit organizations. Streamlined process, scaled-down scope, customized approach to provide strategic design intent solutions. Coached staff, and mentored teams across various Gensler offices, globally, on how to implement this methodology in their local markets, and on how to add the most value to their clients' projects - on restricted timelines and budgets.
NOTE: the "10x10x10 formula" is only used to illustrate the "little g" concept and framework, and is not representative of Gensler fees, scope, or any specific project. This video was developed in the early stages of the "little g" methodology development as a submission to the GRIA (Gensler Research and Innovation Awards in 2014) and has received an Honorable Mention.
