VIRTUAL Lean Coffee – (Oklahoma CoP) @ Zoom Meeting
Aug 4 @ 7:00 am – 8:30 am

Join us for a virtual 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.   

This is going to be an interactive virtual session and 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! It will enrich the experience for all participants.   

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: 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.
