Old Rules - New Rules - Jason Grant's Blog - Adaptive Practice by Jason Grant

Great post from Jason Grant. Here are a few words from the whole post. You really need to read the whole post.

adapt /efficient / effectively compete / passionate / future / radically different views / technology / change

"Over time, drip by drip, year by year, the manual was written, the procedures set, and people were hired to follow the rules. The organization gets extremely efficient at producing a certain output a certain way..... and then competition or change or technology arrives and old rules aren't particularly useful, the old efficiencies not so profitable." - Linchpin by Seth Godin

It is hard to throw out the old rules, standards and efficiencies for new ones. What is the purpose? You know what you are doing and have comfort in knowing how predictable it is. You know how to put together a set of drawings, know how long it will take and how much staff will be required. Now BIM comes around and you need to throw out the old tried and true... even though it is not that old. We act as though the CAD process has been around since the beginning of the Architecture practice when in reality it has only been used for two or three decades in most firms.

Amazing stuff. He's right. Either the architectural industry adopts BIM or they are all going to perish into oblivion.
