Lean Construction Institute

Lean Project Delivery and Last Planner® System are big buzz phrases in the construction industry. Lean uses a collaborative approach to projects that eliminate waste, focus on adding value, and continuously improve. The two pillars of lean are continual improvement and respect for people. As an industry, and as technical people, we tend to focus on the process and the continual improvement part. But we tend to forget the respect for people part. We must address the people side of lean if we want to be successful.  This webinar gives you a foundation for the people side of lean along with practical exercises to implement to create the trust, relationships and “buy in” that you need for success.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand emotional intelligence basics and how these concepts relate to pull planning and Last Planner®

  • Understand Lean Basics and the Two Pillars of Lean with a focus on emotional intelligence.

  • Explore the Toyota Way and all of the steps that involve the people side.

  • Explore ways to implement the people side and get “buy in” for your lean journey.
