Excerpt from a Revit Standards Manual

Some time ago I finished writing a 35 page Revit Standards Manual for our office. Since this is a blog for Revit Beginners I thought I would share an excerpt...

"One thing to keep in mind when implementing Revit for the first time. The more you rely on Revit's advanced features the more training your staff will require to use those features. Flexing families will require training, advanced scheduling will require training, developing clean condocs will require training... and so on. When you can, you should keep it simple. The difficulty is that, if your office is like ours, users will often demand things from Revit that requires the use of more advanced features. Hence more training becomes necessary. And, as people come and go, you will find out that even basic training never really ends."
