Leadership Tools: Quote: BIM is 10% technology and 90% sociology. Scott Simpson. Book: BIM and Construction Management by Brad Hardin and Dave McCool.

There is a lot of technology involved and many technical challenges.  But ultimately the biggest challenges are about talent:

  • Working collaboratively across functional areas and companies
  • Learning new things - constantly
  • Dealing with setbacks - constantly
  • Longer range project planning than is typical
  • Planning with a greater attention to detail than is typical
  • Designing for fabrication and installation with automation where possible 
  • Greater transparency across everyone on the whole project delivery team
