This interactive session will help the audience learn about the recently documented practice of project validation. Project validation aims at proving or disproving with limited or no design whether the project team can deliver a project that satisfies the owner’s business case and scope within the owner’s allowable constraints of cost and schedule and with an acceptable level of risk. It sets the commitment of the team towards achieving project goals and accepting the shared risks of failing to do so. The session will cover project validation concepts, the validation process and its sequence of steps, and the timing of implementation. Lessons learned and resources will be shared. Barriers and benefits will be discussed. Successful and unsuccessful case studies will complement the discussion. At the end of the session, attendees will be equipped with the knowledge to decide whether they should and want to pursue validation, and, if so, plan a successful implementation of project validation effectively.

Lean design and construction methods have emerged as one of the most significant developments to improve value, efficiency, and relationships in the design and construction industry. Design and construction contracts provide both a potential obstacle and opportunity to incorporating Lean tools and developing a Lean culture for your next construction project. Learn how you can use the ConsensusDocs 305 Lean Addendum to facilitate a Lean project without an integrated project delivery (IPD) contract. Getting your contracts right to encourage Lean is difficult. Now there is an industry contract standard form to help.

There are five essentials owners often overlook when standing up a project team. This webinar will challenge common day one assumptions. It will take owners beyond good intentions and fuzzy team building to address deep rooted attitudes and habits that drive supply chain self-serving and adversarial behavior. We will provide also provide you four criteria to evaluate individuals and determine up front if you have a high performing individual, or not. As a bonus you will receive a PDF of a comprehensive checklist for launching a high performing team.
Design professionals want to know how they can improve client outcomes while maximizing design excellence. Participants in the Lean in the Design Phase webinar will gain insight to Lean approaches and tools relative to the design phase of project delivery. They will understand how Lean supports optimizing team communication, collaboration and results by connecting people, principles, and practices. Participants will be exposed to how Lean processes such as Target Value Delivery, set-based design, and the Last Planner System® in Design can be applied.
In this webinar, Christian Pikel will present key topics and lessons for applying Last Planner System® (LPS®) based production planning to the design phase of a project. Participants will learn why it is important to break down traditional large design document set deliverables into a map of information hand-offs and to view question resolution as milestones.
As a shortened primer version of the full Last Planner® in Design workshop, this webinar will introduce participants to the concepts of collaborative design planning and how LPS® principles are adapted for the design phase vs the construction phase and supported by concepts and tools such as scrum and Kanban.
Attendees should have a working understanding of Last Planner System® as applied in construction.
Attendees will learn:
• How the principles of Last Planner System® can be applied to the Design/Development phases of a project.
• How elements of Agile Management and Scrum Framework that combine productively with LPS® in Design Management.
• How successful application of these frameworks and principles can reduce design rework and improve collaboration.
• How metrics can be utilized for team feedback.
• The importance of collaborative plan development and on-going planning conversations in a ‘time-box’ structure.
Staying within the allowable budget and ensuring the team’s innovation decreases waste and increases value to the customer are attributes of successful project delivery and can be achieved through Target Value Delivery (TVD). TVD is a disciplined management practice with several phases (Business Case Planning, Validation, Value Delivery and Value Post Construction) meant to be applied holistically to obtain maximum value. The phases of TVD can be supplemented by core components like team organization, Big Room, project planning, cost modeling, continuous estimating and conceptual design. Take the first step in your journey towards mastering each of the TVD phases and all of the core components in this 90-minute webinar.
