Roles in construction projects: analysis and terminology, by Hughes, W. and Murdoch, J. R, published in 2001 by the University of Reading, suggests that design leadership is: ‘This is the most important function in the project, involving ascertaining what has to be done and why. This person usually has responsibility for eliciting the brief in dialogue with the client, developing the overall design concept (design philosophy) for the project, co-ordinating the design of others, producing the design documentation, negotiating with the local planning authority, inspecting the work as it progresses, clarifying constructional details, etc.’
