BIM Implementation - Culture Change and Integration

BIM presents a major change in the way we design, document, construct and operate assets. Looking at the current trend of BIM adoption at workplaces and educational institutes, two distinct work forces are emerging and will continue in the foreseeable future

(1) Digital technology savvy young workforce with culturally diverse multi-taskers and non-traditional work agenda

(2) Senior professionals with deep experience and traditional work values and ethics

The challenge for businesses is to establish a work culture where young BIM savvy work force and senior professionals integrate more efficiently to provide the best of both worlds to their own business as well the clients.

Back in 2012, I published a blog post on this very matter. Please CLICK HERE to read the blog post.

At national/industry level this culture change/integration challenge is even bigger. I don't have enough credential to comment on this so I will use a relevant material here for the reference.

Please see an image below which is an extract from the article published last year in Construction Manager. To read the full article CLICK HERE.
