pracital approach
The aim of this course is to help break down the BIM-wash and introduce the learner to the tasks relating to the management of information during various delivery stages of project, when using building information modelling, as defined within standards such as ISO 19650 and ISO 12006
learner outcomes
Even though key BIM management  activities appear similar across various role-players, there can still be striking differences in certain disciplines. Think about the differences in perspectives and requirements from a designer to a quantity surveyor, or the different needs related to a BIM Manager and an Information Manager. 
The  learner will learn to understand the tasks needed to create a successful BIM execution Plan, common data environment best practice with ISO 19650 -2  standards. They will also learn about BIM workflows in design and construction and most important of all how to convince others on the benefits of BIM and  how new  transforming technologies are changing the built environment. 
Course overview
This course presents many topics that form the first “go-to” principles for the best BIM management approach. On the surface, the digital built environment has many shades when it comes to understanding BIM. The concept is extremely important for technology development (including construction). The following guidelines will help teams understand the workflows, process and technology which is the  driving force behind innovation. New technologies improve process efficiency, reduce costs, and speed up project delivery time.
