Zen and the Art of BIM Implementation

BIM is a completely new way of doing and thinking about what this industry has done for a long time. It's not a new plugin or a new way of doing some tertiary aspect of our work. It is a radical change to how we produce our core product. 

Some people act surprised, or offended, or disappointed, when an organization doesn't gracefully adopt BIM with zero pain, no fuss. Why? Unless the organization is entirely composed of perfect Zen Masters with minds like water, distress manifested as dysfunction is inevitable. 

Not one single organization has ever adopted some new thing without pain. Your organization will be no different. Accept this as calmly as you can, act and plan accordingly, and stop panicking. Take your lumps and keep moving.
