    Do you think your delay is due to the switch to Revit, or was there other factors?
    Mike was not talking about a delay. He is talking about jumping into one of the biggest, most significant architectural design projects in recent history and, oh yeah, learning Revit at the same time.

    He's a key player on the World Trade Center team at SOM. They started using Revit around 6 months ago and were able to hit their first 'drop dead' deadline last month.

    Another way of thinking about the "drop dead project" issue:

    Doing a pilot project to test the waters implies that it you fail, nothing much is lost. ---Everyone back to A**D.

    By doing a project that CANNOT fail, the stakes are higher, but the motivation to succeed that much greater. And the penalty for failure will be much more painful.

    Neither we nor Revit want that to happen, do we?

    This is definitely an issue, It just happened with one of my clients... OMG, we *might* not be able to meet the deadline, so lets bail... just in case... (without even giving me the chance to come in throw them a life preserver) .. my point I think is about commitment. There is a learning curve, make no mistake, as with anything, but the benefits are well worth the effort.

    For tho$e who aren't reading between the line$, Revit make$ you money...

    For those long time ACAD users, the switch from ADT to Revit was like getting the Release 9 Acad upgrade - what break through (at that time,,, )
