A Lean Coffee 

 


Join us for a Lean Coffee to learn and support each other in our 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 lessons you’ve learned on your Lean Journey. No previous Lean experience is required. 


Participants from cross functional roles as designers, constructors, owners, trades 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 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: Engagement: Reconciling the People Side of Lean with the Process @ webinar
Apr 26 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Despite understanding the purpose and benefits of the principles and tools of Lean Design & Construction, project leadership still often struggles when it comes to achieving true team engagement and culture change. Lack of understanding between project management and trade last planners, lack of training/coaching, and inadequate preparation often lead to a failure to achieve the true engagement that leads to real project success. This webinar will focus on some of the common pitfalls of a Lean initiative, what a truly engaged team looks like, and suggestions to achieve that engagement on your projects.


Learning Objectives:
Describe attributes of a truly engaged Lean team
Identify the pitfalls that lead to a less-than-optimal lean implementation
Understand ways to improve team engagement
Understand the preparation required to conduct a meaningful weekly planning meeting
