Join Brian Myers for an in-depth discussion in this video Internal buy-in, part of BIM Management: Techniques for Managing People and Processes.
- [Instructor] The first kind of authority…I call internal buy-in.…The internal authority is typically generated…from the different groups you see in this image,…upper management, middle management,…your workers and project teams.…Upper management buy-in is usually achieved…if you can generate financial value…may that be in procuring projects, reducing risk factors,…or in simply reducing costs.…Upper management derived authority…is one of the easiest ways to get your agenda pushed out…in an office environment.…
If your upper management does not buy-in,…then it's likely that you have very little authority…and you'll not have the budget nor the project to use it on.…Middle management buy-in occurs…when a department or a powerful individual in a department…is willing to take on the risk of adopting a process…or technology because they believe…it will make the project better.…In whatever way,…better is defined by addressing their needs.…This kind of authority is usually minimal,…but it does allow for the generation of a success story…
