Event Description
Solving problems quickly and effectively directly impacts the ability to deliver a project on time, on budget, and with quality. While project teams are masters at dealing with problems as they arise, it is often a challenge to prevent them from happening again. As a result, large amounts of time, effort and energy are spent repeatedly addressing the same issues. During this 90-minute workshop, learn a practical approach to Lean construction that places focus on implementing lasting solutions to common problems.

Participants will learn:

  • The 7 types of problems called waste, and how they apply to the construction industry.
  • How to identify where the problems are using value stream maps.
  • How to solve the problems using Plan, Do, Check, Act.
  • How a create a culture of collaboration.
  • Resulting benefits in the areas of productivity, lead times, quality, and employee engagement.

This workshop is intended for anyone with an interest in influencing positive change within their organization.
