LCI Central Florida Community of Practice

Welcome to the Central Florida Community of Practice (CoP) website!  The CoP’s purpose is to educate our members on how to improve the productivity and efficiency of everything they do.  We advocate use of Lean principles and tools in all areas of business including the office, shops, vehicles, and at the jobsites.  Through programming and development, the Central Florida CoP helps our members learn and grasp Lean terms and techniques, having a positive impact on the culture change that needs to happen for Lean practices to be implemented.  We have created a Lean forum where you can learn how the Lean process organizes operations and supplies to make the most of available labor, space, and capital.

Lean is not a program that is ever finished; it becomes the culture of the company, therefore providing greater value to all of our customers.

Whether you are researching what Lean Construction is about, just starting your Lean Journey, or have been at it for years, we welcome you to join our upcoming events.  To become more involved in the Central Florida CoP, please contact Kevin Labrecque, Leader, at kevin.labrecque@sevansolutions.com.

LCI Lean Learning Series: A3 Thinking – (Central Florida CoP) @ Microsoft Teams Meeting
Jul 23 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

The LCI Lean Learning Series is a facilitated discussion-oriented event focused on a specific lean subject matter. The event is more structured than a lean coffee yet shorter than an LCI education course. Its purpose is to provide enough knowledge base to kick start an engaging Lean discussion among the participants.

WEBINAR: Kaizen – Continuous Improvement for Design & Construction
Jul 16 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Call it Kaizen, continuous improvement, or operational excellence, we all want to be better and better at what we do. That may be with our crews in the field, how we execute projects, our design teams, or the everyday processes we use to operate our organization. In this webinar you will learn:

 

  • What is “kaizen” and how it is different from “innovation”
  • Why process-oriented thinking, central to all lean thinking, is critical to continuous improvement
  • How to generate and capture ideas for improvement
  • How to turn those ideas in to standard processes that can benefit your projects and your organization
  • Why a focus on people delivers better results than a focus on results
  • What is Value Stream Mapping and simple ways to start mapping now
  • How to turn “lessons learned” in to “improved processes”

 

What you learn can be put to use right away. While becoming a continuously improving organization takes time, with every step you, your teams, and your organization will benefit.

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.
