2011’s Fastest-Growing AE Firms: An Inside View

In a wide-ranging conversation yesterday, Deltek dissected with Mark Zweig, founder and CEO of ZweigWhite, how architecture and engineering firms are growing. Not just growing but experiencing the fastest-growth among all AE firms in the U.S. and Canada.

In looking across the 2011 Hot Firm alumni, Mark identified key traits they share in common. These include:

  • Recognizing that growth is possible even in this miserable economy
  • Focusing on leading, predictive indicators to head off problems before the happen (and conversely to identify opportunities)
  • Institutionalizing firm knowledge
  • More and better marketing
  • More diversification
  • More focus on employees

This echoes what Deltek is seeing among our customers throughout North America (in fact, 80% of the 2011 Hot Firms are Deltek clients). By adopting and systemizing fact-based project management, marketing and general management best practices, firms know where to invest and their growth speaks for itself.
