Lewin's Change Management Model - from MindTools.com

Change is a common thread that runs through all businesses regardless of size, industry and age. Our world is changing fast and, as such, organizations must change quickly too. Organizations that handle change well thrive, whilst those that do not may struggle to survive. The concept of "change management" is a familiar one in most businesses today. One of the cornerstone models for understanding organizational change was developed by Kurt Lewin back in the 1950s, and still holds true today.

Understanding Lewin's Model If you have a large cube of ice, but realize that what you want is a cone of ice, what do you do? By looking at change as process with distinct stages, you can prepare yourself for what is coming and make a plan to manage the transition – looking before you leap, so to speak. Unfreeze This first part of the change process is usually the most difficult and stressful. The Kurt Lewin Model Of Change. Kurt Lewin emigrated from Germany to America during the 1930's and is recognised as the "founder of social psychology" which highlights his interest in the human aspect of change.

The Kurt Lewin Model Of Change

His interest in groups led to research focusing on factors that influence people to change, and three stages needed to make change successful. Unfreeze, Change, Freeze This three stage theory of change is commonly referred to as Unfreeze, Change, Freeze (or Refreeze). It is possible to take these stages to quite complicated levels but I don't believe this is necessary to be able to work with the theory.

But be aware that the theory has been criticised for being too simplistic. A lot has changed since the theory was originally presented in 1947, but the Kurt Lewin model is still extremely relevant. So, three stages. Stage 1: Unfreezing The Unfreezing stage is probably one of the more important stages to understand in the world of change we live in today.

Why WE care about BIM… A post entitled "BIM – Worthy of Clearer Definitions" was published on Directions Magazine on the 31st October.

Why WE care about BIM…

This was followed up by a podcast called "The State of BIM" on the 5th November. These tended to suggest that Building Information Modelling (BIM) was just 3D GIS. My opinion on that; they couldn't be more wrong. To think of BIM as just 3D GIS strikes of the beginnings of a turf war where GIS professionals, concerned about other professionals being able to call themselves spatial experts, demean what BIM really is. Some of the comments made which really show that GIS professionals have much to learn include: Tekla Software in practice: Exeter University Forum by Tekla. OPEN BIM. IFC Support ArchiCAD supports highly iterative coordination with engineers and consultants and delivers several IFC-related improvements including professional scheme-driven data management and data mapping, and high-quality (certified) export processes.

OPEN BIM

ArchiCAD supports the major international IFC 2x3 standards (Model View Definitions) required by buildingSMART and other organizations: Coordination View (1.0 and 2.0), Coordination View (Surface Geometry), Basic FM Handover View (required for COBie documentation), and Concept Design BIM 2010 (required by GSA in US, Statsbygg in Norway, and Senate Properties in Finland). Support for these standards improves a wide range of interoperability workflows with consultants and other disciplines. BIM Collaboration Format Support In addition to IFC, ArchiCAD supports highly iterative coordination with engineers and consultants with full BCF support.

S’il y a peu d’éditeur de CAO français – les trois principaux sont Autodesk (Etats-Unis), Nemetschek (Allemagne) et Bentley (Etats-Unis) - en revanche, de nombreuses PME informatiques se sont positionnées avec succès sur le créneau des logiciels techniques spécialisés, et se sont investies dans le développement d’outils informatiques normés IFC, notamment dans le cadre de nouvelles réglementations. Ces tableaux contiennent la liste de logiciels destinés au marché francophone qui sont capables d'échanger en IFC via un module d'export et/ou d'import intégré.

Informer la conception architecturale par le contexte de médiations du BIM. En quête de l'intelligence collaborative — Laboratoire de recherche en architecture

Cette thèse veut participer à la constitution d’un corps de principes susceptibles de guider l’intégration du BIM aux pratiques pédagogiques en architecture. Profondément enraciné dans divers domaines de la recherche et du développement en informatique au cours des trente dernières années, le concept de BIM fait partie des objets polysémiques, carrefour en renouvèlement continu. Mots-clefs Conception architecturale, pratiques collaboratives, médiation sociotechnique, BIM, pédagogie de la conception.
