Smart Built Culture Series News

As mentioned in an earlier post I'll be working with Middlesex University out of London to create and deliver twelve (12) separate one and one half (1.5) hour webinars to graduate students enrolled in MDX's MSc BIM Management Course. I'll also be writing an instructor's manual and a student study guide for the course. Accordingly, I've decided to go ahead an write book based off the content created for MDX's MSc BIMMM course.

The book will be called "Smart Built Cultures: Fixing Our Broke Built Culture" and it will have approximately 30 chapters.  Below is a rough outline of the Table of Contents for the Book.

Simultaneously with the launch of the online presentations for MDX I intend to launch an online series called the Smart Built Cultures Series which will be modeled after the highly successful IPD Round Table Series offered by Collaborative Construction a few years ago.  The first twelve (12) events in the Series will parallel the first twelve (12) sessions of the MDX course and the first twelve (12) to thirteen (13) chapters in the book.  

The cost of creating all the content for the webinars and writing the book will be defrayed, in part, by selling individual tickets to the online Smart Built Series events and by recruiting Sponsors for the Series.  A separate post will be published over the weekend that outlines the scope, nature and benefits of the Smart Built Series.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  And let me know what you think about the outline / table of contents for the book as set forth below.
