Ok, so you have heard that Lean Construction works, you don’t have 10,000 hours to develop mastery but you want to Giver a Go. Then this lean immersion workshop is for you!
Your facilitator will quickly review the fundamentals and business case for lean construction and then delve into the most critical aspects including forming “the team”, Implementing the two main systems “Target Value Delivery” and the “Last Planner System”.
Business Case and Lean Project Fundamentals: Toyota is more that 2x more profitable than there next closest competitor! In this session we learn why some really smart people have developed similar systems for construction and how lean practices enable projects to be delivered in significantly less time, at less cost.
The current state of a Broken Building Industry
How Lean Systems drastically improve performance
Lesson Learned from exceptional projects
Assemble “the team” and Get Going with Lean Practices: We have just been handed a challenging project with a tight budget and schedule and the boss is on board for adopting whatever project delivery approach is proposed. What’s next? We need to assemble a team, get everyone on the same page with lean systems and fast track the project.
There are no Barriers to Qualifications based Procurement
Assembling “the team” is key to the level of success
Bad Behavior, Not on my project! … No place to hide!
Execute with Discipline for an Early Construction Start: We will apply the Last Planner® System (LP®S) to kick start the project with the objective of securing permits, getting in the ground early and establishing the expected project cost.
Set the milestones, phases plan the project phases
Collaborate to pull plan the work
Execute the work to achieve reliable workflow
Deliver the Project Requirements to Target Cost: Next we learn the Target Value Delivery system that enables projects to be delivered at 18% less cost. We will learn how to quickly develop designs to a target cost so that the Owner can make a Go- No Go decision for an early construction start.
Learn how to implement the TVD process
Understand how Pull Planning is applied to design work
Create a Collaborate Work Environment (Big Room)
A Summary of the Learning Objectives
This workshop focuses on the LPD Framework to give an overview of the steps needed to deliver a lean project. Upon successful completion of this workshop participants will have learned how to:
Make business case for LPD
Assemble a team based upon a competitive qualifications based process
Implement the Last Planner System
Pull plan the design for an early construction start
Design to target cost and schedule
Be disciplined in managing work flow and eliminating waste
Set-up and manage collaborative work
Why take this Workshop?
This work shop was developed based upon lessons learned on 10+ high performance projects. This is the only workshop that we know of that includes all of the steps required to deliver your own lean project using any type of project delivery contract type. Our approach is that with the right team and disciplined execution of lean project systems, any project will benefit from collaboration, creating flow and becoming more efficient.
About your Facilitator: Murray facilitates the implementation of lean and more integrated practices to deliver some of the building industries highest performance and best value projects. Murray believes that all projects should be best value, delivered on time, to budget and create a great story on how the project contributed to making the world a better place.
His lean experience includes project management, design facilitation, construction management and commissioning of 10+ successful projects from start to finish. He has learned how to deliver NetZero building projects at less cost than a traditional build.
Murray is always EXPLORING new ways to reduce the impact of the built environment. He is a founding member of Build Saskatchewan Green, was the Project Manager for Saskatchewan’s first LEED project and has experience on 5+ NetZero building projects. He is a founding member of Lean Construction Institute – Canada, sits on the board and is currently launching a lean project certification program to help build capacity.
