Better Building Workshop
The business of creating our built environment remains largely silos and disconnected today. Owners, designers, construction managers, and trade contractors each defend their profit margins by shifting risk to others and focusing on their own piece of the puzzle. Lean thinking promises to change all this, yet has proven particularly difficult to implement in the building industry.
Better Building provides a practical model for putting Lean thinking into action and improving the experience of project work. Based on years of experience shifting mindsets and behaviors, this model answers the most often asked questions and provides a roadmap for navigating the toughest parts of a Lean transformation journey in the project-driven environment.
Whether exploring Lean for the first time or sharpening skills of leadership and continuous improvement, every individual, team or organization will benefit from these insights.
Join Klaus Lemke as he shares some of the experiences and insights that went into the development of the Better Building model. The session will include practical advice for incorporating Lean thinking into project-driven work, and a chance to exchange ideas and challenge your own thinking about what is possible.
