you get a book that has some very valuable lessons - It is called "What got
you here, Won't get you there" - by Marshall Goldsmith
In that book he mentions several items that will hold you back from
making progress in your efforts to lead others. Here is the list.
Twenty Habits that will hold you back
1. Winning too much (at all costs)
2. Adding too much value to yourself (saying - "I already knew that")
3. Passing Judgment on others opinions
4. Making destructive comments (sarcasm)
5. Starting with “No, But or However”
6. Telling others how smart you are
7. Speaking when angry
8. Negativity – “that will never work”
9. Withholding information
10. Failing to give proper recognition to others
11. Claiming credit that you do not deserve (or failing to speak up when
someone gives you the credit)
12. Making excuses (blaming others or writing it off)
13. Clinging to the past
14. Playing Favorites
15. Refusing to express regret
16. Not listening
17. Failing to express gratitude
18. Punishing the Messenger
19. Passing the buck
20. Excessive need to be “Me”
This is the latest emerging position to oversee technology. What does
it take to get there? Is it just the next step in CAD Management?
Is BIM Management just CAD
Management 2.0 ?
- Many of the same skills are used in both
- Many of the same career stages are the same
- Many of the management problems are the same
- BIM is wrapped tighter to the design process
- BIM Management (at this time) requires more project team interaction
- BIM is not encumbered by the legacy processes of CAD
- BIM impacts more than just the tech tools
- BIM is a narrower focused process and tool for facility design

Tools - Talent - Technology – Training - Time
relates to the ones that you select. Which ones will you use? What
will you use them for?
Talent relates to who is using the tools. Do they have a gut level
understanding of how they are used? Do they get it? Do they push the limits?
Technology is your approach to using the tools and the talent. Who gets to
use what? What mix can they have? When do they select the tools? When do you
push toward the next great tech tool.
Training is how you get everyone there. Provide it and you succeed. Let it
laps and your best tools and talent go stale.
Time – just give it all time to work

Introducing Autodesk Inventor 2009 - by Thom Tremblay -
Sybex - Wiley Publishing
First off – I am not an Inventor user. So my understanding of this tool
is at the lowest level. I have been admiring this tool from the outside, but
never have had the time to enter the lobby, let alone get on the elevator to
the top floors. So my review will be as a new user – one that has never
opened the tool.
Second – This is an introductory book. Novices pay attention. New users –
this is for you. If you are investigating the use of this tool, then this
book will give you a good view of the landscape.
Third – Never underestimate an introductory book. Every bookshelf should
be filled with the first step books that we all have read. And even thought
this book is an introduction to Inventor, it is stuffed with good advice.
Even if you are advanced user, you may find a nugget here that you flew past
on your climb up the learning curve into the upper atmosphere.
