Join Brian Myers for an in-depth discussion in this video Be open-minded and receptive to new ideas, part of BIM Management: Techniques for Managing People and Processes.
- [Instructor] It is not uncommon for new BIM managers or young employees that are put into BIM management roles to think they understand the problems of the people they support. While you may have some idea as to the common issues an individual cares about, it is very likely that you have overlooked the real pain points, or do not really understand what they do unless you have a conversation with them. I know in my career, I've made assumptions about estimators, mechanical engineers, and plumbing designers that turned out to be very wrong, but in time, after many conversations, began to work out those misunderstandings, and started to come together on our goals, on how technology and process can be improved in their working environments.
Please do not make the same mistakes that I made earlier in my career. Come in with an open mind. And over time, find out what each person does and how they do it. Discover what they feel works and what doesn't work, then develop solutions that will have a positive, long-term benefit to them and the organization for those issues.
