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

Presenter:

Connect to the Industry Through Partner Investment.

As a member of the design community, your involvement in the beginning of the project planning process is crucial. From ensuring on-time delivery to guaranteeing high-quality project value, your role is vital to your team’s success. Lean in Design can help you continue to exceed expectations! Lean methodologies help design and construction companies in the U.S. and around the world become more efficient while increasing client satisfaction, cutting costs and eliminating re-work.

Transforming a firm’s culture holistically
Implementing Last Planner® System in design effectively
Making sound decisions collaboratively
Onboarding team members consistently

The annual 2019 LCI Lean in Design Forum, in partnership with P2SL and AIA is a unique event where designers come together to learn about and advance Lean methodologies. Industry-leading design practitioners will present on how Lean techniques free up time for creative decision-making and innovative problem-solving on current topics affecting the design community.

2019 Lean in Design Forum attendees will find immense value in:
Presentations by experienced Lean practitioners
Interactive learning roundtables
Lean in design phase educational sessions
Networking among Lean practitioners with passion for collaboration, creativity and efficient project delivery.
