About the Firm

Peter Piven Management Consultants helps architects, engineers, planners, interior designers, graphic designers, and other design professionals improve their practices and prospects.

Our Clients

Our clients come from a wide range of professional design practices: sole practitioners as well as large, multi-office, multi-discipline firms. They present problems to which we bring expertise, responsiveness and results.

Our Process

We develop as complete an understanding of the situation as possible: the firm's goals, organization, people and practices, and the issues that concern them. We explore options and share our findings in a way that allows our clients to understand their reasonable alternatives and their likely consequences, and we assist them to make reasonable decisions on their own behalf.

Our Deliverables

We prepare memoranda to document all important aspects of an assignment. We document relevant specifics, including client perception and satisfaction studies, marketing analyses and plans, merger/acquisition memoranda of understanding, partnering agreements and charters, personality profile statements, position descriptions and background reports, strategic vision statements and action plans, and valuation analyses and reports.
