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

Setting Standards and the Feedback Loop
Set the standard. Train to the standard. Certify to the standard. Plan the work to the standard. Execute to the plan and the standard. Check against the standard. Make prioritized improvements to the standard, training, planning, and execution.
Evaluating Levels of Importance and Desire
Your feelings about what is "Really Important" or "Urgent" are often lying to you, or at the very least, stretching the truth. Your calendar tells you the truth, even though you may not like what it says.
Stop Doing Things - Peter F. Drucker
The tendency as a leader’s role evolves is to keep adding things to their list of responsibilities and to their team. What’s important is to regularly pause and reflect about what you can STOP doing to allow for new ideas if they are really better.
