Description

Lean — A Revolution in Construction

An introductory and interactive one-day workshop

Construction (and design) are not working. Owners & clients usually get only two of quality, program and cost – one is missed, sometimes two, and, even then, the scope is often reduced. Too many people go home injured or don’t go home at all. Productivity hasn’t improved in 60 years. Buildings leak at the interface between trades. There is more, much more, that is wrong with the way we currently design and build. Projects are ever more complex, owners want them faster and yet there are increasing degrees of uncertainty.

Come and find out more about what is wrong and, more important, learn what you can do about it. There really is another way.

Aimed at corporate leaders and project managers, in this full-day workshop you will learn about new principles, ways of thinking, methods and systems that design & construction companies are using to improve the way work is done. This learning will be reinforced with practical simulations, thought experiments, exercises and examples.

Workshop objectives

  • To understand how construction is broken
  • To be aware of the key lean principles and to think through the benefits of applying them as a distinctive business strategy in your organisation and on your projects
  • To think about and understand the value of collaboration and effective conversations for action on projects
  • To review the key elements of a project procured on an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) basis and understand how the parties can work together to create a very different outcome for all those involved
  • To discuss ways in which you can learn more about putting these ideas into practice
