Workshop: The impact of a consultant: beyond the final report (French)
This workshop encourages the viewpoint of the consultant-client relationship as one where the client is better integrated into the design team. The resulting knowledge transfer to the client helps ensure a continuity of the approach even after the mandate has ended. Workshop participants will learn about the methods developed by the designers, intended to improve designer-client collaboration, and share their own experiences and methods with the group.
