Tool Experience

APG has found that most organizations need to adopt some sort of tooling in order to sustain their new practices. To this end, APG has formed partner relationships with many of the leading vendors in the architecture and engineering space. However, APG understands that it is critical to ground any new practice in process first, for without the appropriate context, “a fool with a tool is still a fool.”
