0.6 – Change Management

Another important topic to consider in the development of the BIM adoption programme is change management that helps firm migrate from current to future states with less disruption and resistance. An example of change management methodology is shown below.

a. Creating climate for change (3 to 6 months)

  • Define urgency for change – e.g. to meet BIM e-submissions or new project procurement requirements
  • Define clear vision, goals and programme
  • Understand key risks and success factors
  • Formulate change strategies and levers

b. Engaging and enabling the change (6 – 12 months)

  • Communication for buy-in
  • Communicate the mandate for change clearly and frequently
  • Share success stories in practice workshops
  • Solicit and address implementation issues from the ground

Enabling actions

  • Provide training and resources
  • Acquire equipment’s and software
  • Define BIM standards

Achieve quick wins – to build momentum of change

  • Use pilot project
  • Reward early movers
  • Set realistic targets

c. Implementing and sustaining the change (12 – 24 months and beyond)

Propagation (from project to project or team to team)

  • Set up quick start template for new teams or projects to follow
  • Set up a progression path for teams to develop in-depth knowledge

Making it stick

  • Define clear ownership and accountability
  • Set up reward system
  • Incorporate BIM practices as part of the organisation’s ISO processes
