Design and Build an Organisation to Deliver: Learning from a Project Management Studio
Authors: Jia, Andrea Yunyan
Successful inter‐professional collaboration in a built environment project takes personal
leadership and interpersonal capacity, professional competencies that are not explicitly addressed in the
current architectural curriculum. This paper presents an action research exploring the pathway of
educating these traits through a project management studio. Students were challenged by a large group
size from which to design and live out an organisational structure to deliver a debate. The results highlight
two themes: perceived ambiguity and workload, and intragroup conflict as trigger of double‐loop learning.
