Is Agile management the next step on the digital journey?

The early design stage is the most crucial stage to impact building performance. A way to facilitate more effective decisions in this stage is to explore as many design alternatives as possible and analyse them to find optimum solutions. However, the traditional architecture workflow does not support an iterative design process and design decisions are made without supporting performance analysis, which is typically done at the end of the process. Other industries such as IT, and more specifically software development, realised the importance of early analysis and feedback and understood the potential of using an iterative design process for improving product performance and developed agile project management to facilitate this. Although the advantages of agile project management have been proven in the IT industry, this method has hardly been used in the construction industry and the applicability of it has not been studied. In this session, the Agile management, its characteristics and benefits will be explained. In addition, a BIM-based Agile iterative framework will be presented that can be used in construction projects.
