Join us for a Lean Coffee style Happy Hour event to restart the conversation about our current Lean endeavors. Take part in an open conversation in a safe, small and low pressure environment about the topics that are relevant to our lean community. We want to hear about the problems you are solving, the issues you want to solve and the lessons you have learned on your Lean Journey. No previous Lean Experience is required.
Participants from cross functional roles such as designers, contractors, owners, trade partners and associations propose discussion topics around any subject about which they want to learn – THERE ARE NO IRRELEVANT DISCUSSION TOPICS!! Each proposer takes 15-30 seconds to pitch their topic, written on a sticky note, to the group. Once all topics have been pitched, voting begins to establish a priority for discussing the topics. Topics are then ordered from highest to lowest votes and examined accordingly. Participants will receive 5 minutes of time to discuss the topic. After 5 minutes there will be a “thumbs up / thumbs down” to decide whether or not the discussion should continue. Thumbs up means 3 more minutes on the clock. This happens until it is agreed that the topic has been discussed to satisfaction. Takeaways are considered and then the group will move on to the next topic on our list.
Adult beverages will be provided for those in attendance. Come as you are and be ready to learn.

Join the vPlanner team for this short overview of the best practices of managing collaborative pull planning while working remotely. Since February, our team has coached dozens of project teams around the world to transition from on-site management to remote/hybrid management of their production plans using vPlanner. We will also share how we have been adapting takt planning to a variety of project types and situations including in recovery planning to lessen the impact of social distancing on the workflow. We have assembled lessons learned for planning the design, construction, commissioning, and activation that we will share during this webinar.
Review 10 essential Lean books with Lean construction leader and author Hal Macomber. Intended for people starting to implement Lean practices as well as those continuing to build their Lean organizations and projects. This is the perfect precursor to Congress and will help keep teams on track well after the event is over.
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:
High-performing teams function on collaborative brain power to rapidly advance work and add value by operating in a Big Room setting. Effective Big Rooms are only possible with the mindset and behaviors that break down the traditional silos to allow for cross-functional team collaboration and decision-making. Through the Effective Big Room webinar, you will gain a foundational understanding of the concept of a Big Room by learning the benefits, purpose, and implementation considerations. This webinar will lead you to understanding how to improve collaboration and drive transparency within your team to optimize project outcomes.
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 we will be capping registration at 70 in order to keep the 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.
