The software industry has been massively improved by adopting “Agile” design and delivery processes, where “Agile” essentially describes breaking large tasks into smaller tasks and being organised and flexible in how they are delivered to produce a final product.
Interestingly it would seem the building industry is a long way behind here, with very few architecture or engineering firms seemingly applying an agile philosophy to their work.
If you’re curious about what I’m talking about - check out my blog post here.
How about you? Have you tried using Agile in the design of buildings or products? When using SketchUp or as a way to organise the evolution of your model? If so would love to hear more about it!
