TK-Architecture has been modeled around small successful team structures common to the Special Forces in the military. Such teams form the operational units of the Special Forces (green berets), Navy Seals, and Rangers. These teams have consistent traits that are key to their operations and successful completion of their missions. Many of these traits are transferable and applicable to the business world and are, more than ever, relevant to the new and changing business environment.
Small - Small businesses form the backbone of the American economy. Small teams can be more agile, flexible, and quick to adapt to changes in the clients' needs, economic conditions, and practices within the profession.
Agile - Clients, projects, regulations, technology, economic conditions; all are constantly changing and at a quicker pace than ever before. Firms must be quick to adapt to the constantly changing conditions of the profession and the business climate. The team structure must be modular and able to be modified to accommodate the needs of the individual client and project. Staffing of a project should be simple, adequate, and consistent.
Diverse - Clients are diverse. Projects are diverse. To continually service clients and all their needs, a team must be able to design multiple project types. A small team does not have "experts" who focus on only one type of building. Individuals with the firm are multi-talented individuals who are able to fulfill any role needed on a project.
Elite - Providing a quality service that is a step-above-the-rest is a sure strategy for being set apart from the competition. The team can take pride in knowing that they are part of an exceptional group and that it is among the best.
