What to expect during the event
My name is Ryan Forde, I am a BIM Coordinator and Trainer at ArcDox I am going to spend the next 10-15 minutes talking about the importance of the Project Information Manager. The reason I want to talk about this topic comes from my own experiences executing the role of Information Manager on several projects, which range in various sizes, shapes and scopes. The topics I want to discuss have been documented quite well in the latest standards, but still emerge in discussions from time to time with different project stakeholders. The aim is to review the importance of information management, the duties and responsibilities of the information manager and how tasks are managed and completed over the lifecycle of a project
