An interesting but sometimes blunt process that happens in firms is ‘ranking’ their Revit users by proficiency. There are various reasons to do this, and some of them make sense. In an ideal world, all of your Revit users are simply awesome and you have no skills problems. But yeah, real life ain’t that way is it?
So how do you go about it? And do you use those ratings primarily?
Personally, I think the success of Revit in your firm is likely more affected by culture and attitude. Are people being forced to implement something they don’t like or understand? That could be an uphill battle…
I am trying to find the ‘original’ post document to link to it – anyone have any idea where the ‘oldest’ ‘in the wild’ version of this exists?
In harmony with the title of this blog, I thought the description of the final phase was worth re-stating (yet again, I know…) Here it is:
You have mastered nearly all things Revit. You “know” what Revit “likes”, and what it “dislikes” during model construction, a sixth sense, really. You spend your time exploring and tweaking advanced scheduling, OBDC, external parameters, AR3. You have a template to beat all templates, families for every situation.

To know What Revit Wants is indeed to “know” what Revit “likes”, and what it “dislikes”…a sixth sense, really.
