Intro to Lean in Design – Construction Phase

Sometimes the choices we make as Designers can impact outcomes on our projects in ways we never intended! If we would have known, we may have made a different choice.

Join us as we explore an introductory look at the basics of Lean and the Designer’s role in Lean Construction during the construction phase of a project. There will be a mix of presentations, a sprinkling of theory, hands-on simulation, and group discussions. If you have not had an opportunity to participate in a “Lean” simulation before, this is a great opportunity to try one!

1. Become familiar with the basics of Lean Principles and Lean vocabulary
2. Get a view into the current practices of Lean on projects in our market
3. Develop a basic understanding of flow and variation – including impacts of variation and methods for reducing variation
4. Hear ideas to improve workflow during construction phase.
5. Identify some next steps in your Lean learning path.
