The development of good habits, instinctive behaviors that allow a person to flawlessly complete complex tasks, is the key to the success of any major endeavor, from running a major corporation to overseeing a construction megaproject.
In the context of top-performing project teams, individual habits add up to project-wide processes. Teams with the most efficient processes have the most successful projects. But what happens when a process that worked great in the past becomes outdated? This is the challenge facing teams on construction projects of all sizes as the industry’s growing adoption of cloud + mobile technologies allows for new, more collaborative approaches.
“We must learn to overcome paradigms that worked in the past but that new technological, social or market contexts make obsolete,” the organizers of the European BIM Summit declared when they announced the conference last year.
