15.3 The Meaning

15.3.1 Mission: Mission = North Star (unchanging) Good: Johnson and Johnson Tylenol Crisis of 1982

“Our reason for being is the men, women, and children, that use our products”- Johnson and Johnson mission statement

“Empower people through great software, anytime, through any device.” –Microsoft mission statement Bad: Kodak ignored digital
  • Camus “not to choose is also to choose” Bottom Line:
  • Your company must grow to survive and change is a necessary part of growth. Perhaps, Revit will not line up with your companies mission statement. Perhaps, you are unwilling to change for either, lack of resources, lack of desire, or, an inability to overcome fear. I cannot change that for you; however, if you are willing to move forward with Revit, NOW is the time to start.
  • Revit will not be a part of your mission statement. It should be a Strategic initiative “Implement Revit Building/Structure/Systems” on your company’s Strategic Plan (see resources). Each Strategic initiative will have its own Strategic Plan and the Mission statement on that plan should be something like the following:

Your Mission Statement for Revit: though a Kaizen approach for implementation, achieve a 100% Revit Based Project environment

15.3.2 Confront Brutal truth
  • This is a 10X Event for our industry
  • What happens when you don’t?
  • Merrill Lynch = Sub Prim Mortgage
15.3.3 Why People CAN’T
  • Psychology of it all
  • I don’t need to change
  • I’m making Enough
  • I don’t have the resources to change
  • What happens if I fail
  • Real or an anomaly

Andy Grove "only the paranoid survive"

15.3.4 Ambiguity/ Order

Andy Grove" you need a high tolerance for ambiguity but must strive to order that which is around you."

  • Managing Expectations
  • Changes Work Flow / Design Process / Standards
  • Michelangelo ’s David
  • This is a big hunk of Marble
  • This will not come easy
  • It will not be linear

How do you eat an elephant?

15.3.5 The Bus: Jim Collins
  • The right people on the bus, the wrong people off the bus and everyone in the right seats!
  • first ask who not what
  • PS: Read / listen to his book ~ Good to Great
  • Jack Welsh - 600 … knows firsthand people…
  • 60% of his time on people working on people relations = HR
15.3.6 Post Action Briefing: “Monday morning quarterback”
  • What worked, what didn’t, and WHY
  • Suggested Time Interval
  • Post Training event
  • Weekly project prints
  • Monthly Progress Reports
  • Entire Project
15.3.7 Cassandra and Polina ~ the "Fall of Troy"
  • P = outgoing / trusting / never doubts / bring it in
  • C = skeptical / trusts no one / people are failed / leave it out
  • You must be P in the ultimate outcome, u need the C to get there.
15.3.8 Speed
