  • the key legal factors within an organisation that need to be considered when selecting digital solutions 
  • the benefits of Building Information Modelling (BIM) 
  • the factors which need to be considered when making a business case for a digital solution 
  • the key factors to consider when implementing a digital strategy 
  • the behaviours and attitudes within an organisation that can affect the successful implementation of a digital solution
