Conversations With Coaches @ Zoom Meeting
Aug 14 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Join us for a 90-minute virtual CoP experience to engage deeply with independent Lean Coaches in a collaborative discussion.

Come with your most vexing Lean implementation or project problems and get expert advice. We will utilize breakouts to discuss topics in small groups, each led by a coach.

The Zoom link for attendance will be included with your registration confirmation email.

This is going to be a fun and interactive session and due to demand, we are doubling our cap from 50 to 100 – but don’t worry, we will still have enough coaches to keep groups small! As well, joining from your mobile device may be frustrating. For that reason, we are only allowing attendees to join from your computer. We also ask that everyone #turnyourcameraon and come ready to actively participate! It will enrich the experience for all participants.

22nd Annual Congress @ A Virtual Conference
Oct 19 @ 9:45 am – Oct 23 @ 1:00 pm

Discover the presentations that mean the most to your Lean journey with five tracks built around the overarching theme of The ABCs of Lean: Transformation through Actions, Best Practices and Coaching:

  • Transforming Behavior & Culture
    Lean isn’t just about tools and processes, but rather effective ways to approach challenges. New thinking leads to Lean behaviors and creates a culture of continuous improvement and respect for others. This track will explore how coaching can drive sustained behavioral change and the techniques and best practices that have demonstrated positive results.
  • Transforming Preconstruction & Design
    Architects, engineers and trade partners face unique challenges when asked to collaborate during pre-construction. This track will investigate the challenges have been addressed by applying Lean throughout the project planning and design phases to maximize value and reduce waste.
  • Transforming Procurement & Production
    As speed to market demand continues to drive pressure for quicker turnover of projects, more effective procurement, and transformational supply chain management is needed. This track will cover the actions, best practices and coaching methods that are being used to explore and solve delivery challenges and increase productivity through Lean design and construction.
  • Transforming Construction Support & Planning
    Construction support and planning tools create better information flow and transparency. Together, we will discuss how utilizing tools such as visual communication, project onboarding processes, the Last Planner System ®, etc. have transformed projects and outline what obstacles these tools have helped resolve. Attendees will share how they have coached or have been coached to leverage construction support and planning tools to achieve Lean transformation.
  • Transforming Field Execution & Safety
    Optimizing field efficiency and effectiveness through safe practices should be the number one goal of all Lean organizations. This track will cover the actions, best practices, or coaching techniques have been implemented to transform the field or safety on various projects.
