AUGIWorld August 2014 Issue
A collaborative effort
One would think successful collaboration among team members would be virtually effortless. Really, with all the technology available these days, how hard could it be for professionals, even those who aren't housed in the same office, to work together and end up with anything less than a perfectly executed project?
The truth is that collaboration, like anything else in business, requires solid planning. In the August issue, AUGIWorld authors provide sage advice about how to collaborate effectively. In "All Together Now," Bill Campbell discusses the role of BIM in collaboration.
Josh Carney reveals that the tools needed for collaboration were given to us at an early age in his article, "Play Nice in the Sandbox."
CAD Manager Mark Kiker presents the first half of a two-part article about "Keys to Collaboration."
There's much more on collaboration and other topics in this issue.
