The management of four New Zealand Quantity Surveying firms is examined using a five part framework. Comparison is made between current practice and that observed during research in 1996. It is concluded that the firms are now more clearly pursuing value added strategies and that they have become less flexible in their structures. In the commentary section the author debates how the firms might further develop their strategies and comments on the dangers of a less flexible structure.
