Perfecting your digital construction career: Step 2
Welcome to step 2 – of maximising your career potential – Where am I now?
By completing step 1 you should have a good idea of the right destination for you, the type of role that best suits your personality and the route that best fits your preferences and ambition.
Before you start creating your career map you need your starting point. It is important to get this right to avoid a false start. Unfortunately, the digital transformation of the construction industry is still embryonic. Whereas a few companies are genuine trail blazers, others are still trying to spell BIM. No wonder there is such a variety of titles for similar roles and wildly differing definitions of what good looks like.
A lot of people think or are told they are at a certain level. To start your journey well and truly understand where you are now, you need to compare your capability against the wider construction industry.
The BIM Competency Assessment Tool has been designed by a multi-disciplinary panel of experts from various sectors in the construction the industry to help you assess and compare your capability against a common standard.
