    As a group, we’ll share ideas, workflows, and techniques to help make for a smoother transition to Revit software so that others may benefit from our successes and failures. You may have heard that the only way to switch to using Revit is to just dive right in and take the plunge. Well, maybe there are options beyond this “sink or swim” approach. Can you afford to retrain your entire staff at once? Do you know who should or should not learn Revit? We’ll share with one another how switching to Revit has affected our practices, workflows, staffing, and efficiency. We’ll discuss our biggest successes and failures. We want to hear about any unique ideas or workflows that you’ve discovered to help make for a successful transition to Revit. The goal is to have our more-experienced Revit users share their personal experiences, knowledge, and advice with those who are considering, or have not yet made, the switch to Revit, or who are having problems integrating Revit into their firms.
