About BIM adoption. But more importantly, about changes.
For any company trying to adopt BIM is not simple, especially when it involves changing to a whole new working culture and an entirely different way of doing things.
Commenting on or even poking the BIM element instead of marking up drawings to notify changes to your colleagues. You place walls and doors, etc., around in an approximate way then come back to adjust their correct sizes later. It's just a click away. In the CAD world, whatever lines you draw must be thoughtful and precise, because returning to make changes is just a nightmare. And so on.
Often times when involving significant changes, it is easier to ease the adoption process by purely focusing and measuring the differences of a specific term. It could be total time saved in making design changes or an overall adoption rate of the whole team/company be familiar using BIM tools, etc. Choose ones that are measurable and involved directly to your success.
Therefore over time, the transition becomes seamlessly blended into the company’s culture and environment. This period of change and transition is what we refer to as an “organization-wide paradigm shift”.
A “paradigm shift” is significant because it not only changes the internal working process of the company but also the overall business directions, objectives, and purposes of the company.
But what else could you expect in this era of relentless change? Make changes or be changed?
