A Manager’s Guide to BIM

BIM is not just about new software. As you make the move to BIM, it is important to realise that you’re changing much more than just the tools you use. Many of our customers have characterised this change as a much bigger leap than the move from the drawing board to CAD 30 years ago. BIM changes the way you collaborate internally, the way you run a project, the way you work with your customers. Most likely, it will bring about a re-evaluation of and change in your business processes. If you are involved at a strategic or operational level in helping your company transition to BIM, our 1-day A Manager’s Guide to BIM workshop is ideal for you.
