Joint Event: The Financial Impact of ALL-IN BIM

This presentation describes a powerful and enlightening workshop that has been used over 20 times, and has been expanded and refined for 4 years.  As BIM has matured as a technology and the culture of project communications has embraced it, the ROI keeps growing larger.  In the last year it has produced predicted results of 4 and 5 percent savings on the project…net.  This presentation will get you thinking about how to maximize the financial benefits of BIM for your team, your company…and how to play a leadership role in the industry’s transformation to integrated use of BIM.

It is the conviction of many that BIM pays off, and the benefits are hugely amplified with teamwork.  Many companies are investing, but what is the financial return on that investment? It turns out to be a complex question, but it can be solved with a systematic approach, and the process of seriously addressing the topic is perhaps one of the most powerful things you can do for your company, its leadership, and your career.

The big questions to answer as you evaluate your company’s ROI are: How much project teamwork can you foster?  What kind of contract(s) do you have?  How much synergy can you generate between stakeholders?  Are they experienced at BIM, sharing, and workflow optimization?  Do they need education about the multitude of benefits of BIM?  Can you play a leadership role…and motivate them to collaborate?  Of the financial benefits that the team generates, how much becomes net revenue for your company? Indeed, the return on investment is a complex question and nobody can answer that question more accurately than the people that work on your team(s).

    It's so important to understand the ROI of technology implementation and Ken did a great job with an overview of the key aspects.

    The presentation was an ad for a workshop. All of the material was general. No explanation or details were provided.
    I was hoping for more interactivity with the AGC BIM Forum. Our group was mostly designers. I didn't realize theat the BIM Forum would be remote.

    I thought the speaker had a lot of knowledge on the topic and hit many key points. He truely opened my eyes wider to how important our craft is. The one draw back was I felt at times he prepared for a much longer presentation, therefore he cut through topics he planned to go in detail with. By cutting the topics it seemed to give the presentation an unorganized feel at times.
