BIM fits into any corporate strategy
BIM must be used in such a way that it creates the greatest added value for your company. When you choose BIM, it is important to integrate BIM into your business strategy. The introduction of BIM addresses the interweaving of strategy, structure and culture.

Integrate BIM into your company in such a way that it fits into your culture. Is your company modern, agile, adaptable, technology-oriented, future-oriented? Or do you want to become one? Then BIM is just right for you.
Changes in corporate culture take time. Try to gradually integrate BIM as part of your philosophy. Jerky changes lead to shock situations - and a culture grows out of its followers.
BIM strategy: defining and verifying goals

Set yourself first small targets, these help to achieve long-term results.
