FunctionSense is a blog dedicated to productivity, efficiency, and change and focuses on providing tips and tricks on daily production for power users and those tasked with making others more productive in the AEC workplace.

Topics covered will include business standards, processes, procedures, and what they mean. The purpose is to provide useful information to get businesses more productive, more efficient, more effective and out of their “comfort zone”.


I recently changed jobs and have started down a new path. As part of this change, I do not see me contributing content to this blog.

Therefore, I am no longer accepting new sign-ups on this site. It has been awhile since I added new content, and I do not feel it is right to accept registrations when no new content is planned.

As much of the content is not time-based and will to provide value, the existing site content will remain until such date that I feel it is time to completely shut down the blog.

I have enjoyed creating information for this blog and sharing it with those who have read and hopefully benefited from some of the content.

I still maintain another blog that I will be contributing to on any current interests that I have. This blog is: WaltSparling.com

Thanks for your interest.


About Me:

FunctionSense is an AUGI Professional member

I currently work as a Senior Project Manager for a 250+ year old professional services firm, that focuses on all aspects of the real estate industry.

While working at various firms over the years, primarily in the construction-design industry, but in general offices as well, one thing always kept me motivated – Improvement!

I spent a lot of my personal time finding and implementing ways of reducing complexity, saving time, creating standards and better documenting

In doing so, I created new standards, implemented more automation in IT systems, enacted process changes, and spread the knowledge to others on how they could do things faster and more efficiently (efficiency is not always about speed).
