One thing that has been fantastic about the RIBA Plan of Work 2013 project has been the way that at NBS we have been able to work with the RIBA authoring and publishing team to produce digital versions of each publication.
In March when the plan was launched, the NBS team produced the website www.ribaplanofwork.com - all of the content in a modern online digital form - and with some added extras like the ability to customise the plan to fit a particular way of working.
Now in October, with the latest RIBA POW publication, at NBS we have worked with the author Dale Sinclair to produce a free Toolbox download containing examples of the practical tools described in the book.
There are words written about this elsewhere - so I'll list a few hyperlinks below as opposed to repeat them.

Dale describes the book in his article at the RIBA Journal website:

I have written an article on theNBS.com that describes the Toolbox. We have also recorded a short training video that gives a bit of help on how to use the tools:
3. Hear from the author
Dale is one of the main speakers at our NBS Live conference on 26th November. If you'd like the chance to hear from industry experts such as Dale and many others (including Peter Hansford) then sign up now:
