Many CAD and Building Information Modeling (BIM) managers have little to no direct managerial authority over the staffers they support, yet they're still expected to get results. To make things worse, many times these managers are also engineers, architects, or designers working under severe time constraints while expected to remain billable. This discussion will focus on strategies for peer-to-peer interaction with users and project managers that can help you persuade people to comply with key CAD/BIM management directives like standards, file storage, training, and interdepartmental coordination. If you fit the peer-to-peer CAD/BIM-manager profile you're sure to pick up some solid ideas you can use immediately. And even if you do have full managerial authority, you can still benefit from using some of these collaborative and persuasive strategies. This class is designed for managers of multiple disciplines.
