A Lean Coffee: Managing the Clients Expectations

 


Participants will include designers, constructors, owners, trades partners, and associations. Each proposer takes 15 to 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 8 minutes of time to discuss the topic. After 8 minutes there will be a ‘thumbs up/ thumbs down’ to decide whether or not the discussion should continue. Thumbs up equals 4 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 topic with the next largest amount of votes is addressed. Come as you are and be ready to learn!

WEBINAR: Building a Healthy Team for Project Success: Cooperation vs Collaboration @ webinar
Mar 29 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Why collaborate? Because it works, and because we can!

To foster true collaborative behavior – collaboration that can withstand the inevitable challenges presented by complex construction projects – requires the right people performing the right tasks within an environment that promotes trust and mutuality of expectation over shared project outcomes. Teamwork produces optimal results in nearly all fields of human endeavor. Military engagements, marketing campaigns, and sporting contests all depend on closely coordinated team effort. The failure to work as a team often results in failure or worse.

Investing in building a collaborative culture and a “people first” initiative has been shown to be a primary ingredient to engender success and to improve project results. This presentation will present some basic leadership strategies for building a healthy project team and a culture of collaboration on projects of all scopes and complexity.

What is your leadership style?

  • Command and Control
  • Consensus
  • Collaborative
