LCI San Antonio Community of Practice

The San Antonio Community of Practice (CoP) is for Owners, Design and Construction professionals to create, identify and share techniques, best practices and ideas for improving individual, team and company successes within their area of expertise. We will also sponsor events aimed at providing Lean thinkers and adopters the opportunity to learn more about Lean, to receive Lean training, to hear about Lean success stories and also to meet other likeminded individuals.

I am Brian Winningham, the Leader of the San Antonio COP and I began my Lean journey in 2012.  Our San Antonio COP Core Group is currently 17 members strong and has representatives from the Owner, Architectural, General Contractor and Subcontractor communities in San Antonio. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have questions or an interest in learning more about Lean. I can be reached anytime at bmw@fielddrivenlean.com.

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: 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

As a member of the design community, your involvement in the beginning of the project planning process is crucial.

Making sound decisions collaboratively
Onboarding team members consistently
