Virtechs’ ‘BIM Awareness and Understanding’ workshops are attended by delegates from a variety of different trades and professions and from a wide range of companies.
For me, one of the most gratifying aspects of delivering the workshops is seeing delegates becoming enthused about the future once they begin to understand my proposition that ‘BIM is an opportunity, not a threat’.
Inevitably, though, a small proportion of delegates respond negatively to the idea of change. Their resistance often manifests itself in the language they use and the reasons they cite for resisting change.
Here, then, is the second of the top five reasons I hear as to ‘why BIM won’t work’!
2. "We've always done things this way."
I absolutely respect your decision as a business owner to decide the way in which you plan and conduct your business and I would never recommend change for change’s sake. It’s not for me to tell you how to run your business!
I do believe, though, that the world around us is constantly changing and - cliched though it is - the business that stands still is a business that is actually going backward. Not so long ago there were many goods and services that seemed, at the time, to be at the very cutting edge of their particular sectors but which now seem completely antiquated.
I well remember as a boy having a reel-to-reel tape recorder; how quickly it was superseded by the cassette tape; a few years after the cassette, the CD transformed the market; nowadays most of us don’t use any sort of physical medium on which to store our music and films…
Significantly, when the invention of the transistor transformed the design of radios, not a single manufacturer of radio valves changed to producing transistors…
How will the decisions you make today, about whether or not to change, impact your business in one year from now, or in five years’ time?
What will your legacy be...?
Virtechs’ BIM Awareness and Understanding’ Workshops are delivered by knowledgable and experienced BIM practitioners with ‘real-world’ experience. The workshops cover a variety of relevant topics - remember, it’s not all about technology! - and, whatever your BIM knowledge or experience there is a workshop to suit you.
Our workshops are highly acclaimed; here are what some of our customers say about them:
“The BIM course was great, very informative and delivered at a level which helped even complete beginners like myself to understand how BIM works and how it relates to my role.”
“I would have no hesitation in recommending Dave [Emery] to you not only as a person who is very experienced and capable in BIM but is also a pleasure to work with. It is pretty rare for me for me to be so effusive in a professional recommendation but in Dave’s case it’s entirely justified."
“I’ll come straight to the point: the feedback from our staff [about your BIM Workshops] has been first class."
“I have no hesitation in saying that Virtechs provide an excellent service, and is the best consultancy I have worked with."
