Online training (Global eTraining)

To further enhance the skill development and assess the proficiency of their team members, Global eTraining was implemented, an online learning platform. The platform provided customized quizzes designed to evaluate the skill levels of both new and experienced users within the office. These quizzes helped identify knowledge gaps and areas that required additional attention. Moreover, the integration of video suggestions for incorrect quiz answers provided targeted resources, enabling team members to gain a deeper understanding of Revit. To facilitate the learning curve, a Revit Plug-In was introduced, offering on-demand guidance and support within the Revit environment.

Lunch & Learns

Building upon the insights gained from the Global eTraining phase, Interscale organized tailored upskilling and training sessions known as "Lunch &Learn" sessions. These sessions were designed to address specific inefficiencies identified through the data collected during the Global eTraining phase, as well as common workflow questions the team had from starting to design current projects in Revit. Interscale delivered interactive sessions, sharing best practices, advanced techniques, and tips for optimizing workflows within Revit. These Lunch & Learn sessions not only improved the team's proficiency, but also fostered a culture of continuous learning and knowledge-sharing within the organization.

Project Assistance

Understanding the importance of ongoing support during the transition phase, Interscale provided project assistance to their team members. This support included both onsite and offsite assistance through office visits and a dedicated Teams channel. This created a repository of frequently asked questions and common issues, allowing team members to access documented solutions quickly. Interscale also provided specialized help for unique workflows and assisted with project start-up to ensure a smooth transition. This dedicated support system helped the team overcome challenges and maintain productivity during the adoption of Revit.
