AbstractLeadership is characterized by a distinctive ability to act. Their sum of specialized, self-reliant and social competence as an expression of the actor's leadership is inseparably linked with the understanding of his attitude.
ObjectiveThe aim is to achieve a high level of professional competence, self-competence and social competence and the ability to optimally incorporate the acquired knowledge in his leadership style.
ContentProfessional competence is the ability to handle tasks of one's own discipline. Both the learned theory and the experienced practice are important in order to be able to recognize connections and solve problems independently and purposefully.

Self-competence is the ability to take responsibility. In an iterative process, this involves the ability to analyze and sharpen one's own knowledge and ability in terms of independence, critical faculty and self-confidence in order to be able to develop one's own values ​​through reliability.

Social competence refers to the ability to understand others as well as behave appropriately and wisely to them.

W1 credit2GS. Menz
AbstractKey terms: Atoms and bits, transparency and manipulation
ObjectiveIndependently of the building industry, Module 1 initially provides information about the characteristics of digitalisation through its principles and rules, enabling the participants to independently recognise the short-term and long-term changes that are resulting from it.
ContentThe principles involved in digitalised business and society are illustrated using experience from fields that have already been changed, such as the hotel industry and the music industry. The switch from materially based collaboration to data-supported networking conflicts with established methods, tools and structures. Weaknesses in the relevant legislation may even become apparent — such as the uncertainties involved in liability issues for self-driving robots. Parallels with the building industry are developed on this basis in order to identify effects involving transparency, the acceleration of business processes and questions of property and liability.

AbstractKey terms: Substitution or disruption, organisation and “lean management”
ObjectiveModule 2 presents the origins and breadth of applications involved in automation and the conditions it requires, enabling participants to recognise the potential of these areas in a value-creation chain in which software and machines take over specific working steps.
ContentEver since the first industrial age, the automation of repetitive processes has been continuously transforming the processes and competences involved in the manufacturing industries. In relation to the building industry, it represents both an opportunity and a risk, since software is increasingly responding to individualised aspects of the planning, construction and usage of buildings.

An introduction to the scripting language Python is intended to familiarize participants with thinking in terms of data.

AbstractKey terms: Networked data, semantics and file formats
ObjectiveModule 3 provides the data-technical basis for digitally networked collaboration, enabling the participants to understand and evaluate the principles of data architecture, as well as details of file formats, attributes, servers and cloud-based systems.
ContentThe way in which data are structured in a digitalised sector of industry has tremendous effects on the people involved and on the ways in which they work. Well-structured data are more easily interpreted by software, leading to shorter information exchange cycles and information analysis, and consequently affecting project processing. Poorly structured data and interfaces, on the other hand, lead in the long term to data losses and a need for costly reorganization work.

The module explains and positions currently familiar open data formats such as IFC, BCF and COBie.

AbstractKey terms: BIM and VDCO, fields of application and software
ObjectiveUsing specific examples, Module 4 illustrates the foundations and versatility of building information modeling (BIM), enabling participants to deal with the concepts, applications and mechanisms involved.
ContentBIM has become a key term in the digitalisation of the building industry. The program demonstrates the requirements and opportunities in this method of working, which is based on networked data and structured processes. The state of practical work here is presented through specific applications that extend beyond the areas of collision testing and room booking administration. The module ends by describing the current status of standardization in Switzerland and provides examples from abroad as well.

Finally, methods of writing an academically argued thesis, required for the program certificate, are presented.

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.
