The Lean Builder Workshop


Starting with WHY and ending with HOW, we provide a holistic understanding of Lean’s benefits. Then we simplify and clearly articulate the benefits of seven primary Lean concepts, and teach them in a highly relatable, immediately applicable, and field-friendly manner. You’ll walk away with an easy-to-follow blueprint and implementation plan to lead your team and dramatically improve your project delivery process through:

  1. Daily Huddles
  2. Visual Communication
  3. The Eight Wastes (through the lens of a construction project)
  4. Constraint Management
  5. Pull Planning
  6. Last Planner System and Look-Ahead
  7. Root Cause Analysis through Percent Plan Complete (PPC)

The Lean Builder Workshops provide relevancy, fill in the blanks, and offer the help you’ll need to make Lean implementation easier to understand and accomplish.
