AbstractKey terms: Business models, performance and “business intelligence”
ObjectiveUsing examples, Module 5 identifies value-creating activities in the lifecycle of a building, enabling participants to recognise and name the effects of digitalisation. In addition, the participants present their own theses in Module 5.
ContentDigitalisation is calling the foundations of value creation into question. The current status quo is being compared with the potential offered by digitalisation, and the first winners and losers are being identified. One challenging phenomenon is robot-aided manufacturing, for example. New business fields are also opening up as a result of “business intelligence,” which supports project managers in their decision-making processes.

At the end of the semester, the participants will present the state of their own theses on digitalisation and open them up for discussion.
