Introduction to Lean Construction:

Creating a new common sense

Key Bridge Marriott, Arlington VA.

2 Days

Thursday, June 11, 2009 8 AM - 5 PM

Friday June 12, 2009 8 AM - 3 PM
Lean Construction creates three opportunities for improving project delivery - “Impeccable Coordination," "Project as Production System," and "Project as Collective Enterprise.” The seminar will introduce key concepts, principles and techniques to make sharp the difference between Lean Construction and current project delivery practices. The agenda is built around the Three Opportunities in a way to surprise and provoke participants, to shift common sense. The seminar includes hands on simulations, case studies, lectures and discussion. Presenters will include Greg Howell Cofounder of LCI, and LCI members explaining their experiences and results. On completion, participants will understand the essential actions and techniques applied in practice to take advantage of each opportunity. Participants will be able to design their plan for moving forward. The seminar starts each day at 8AM. The first day will close at 5PM, the second at 3PM. Participants should be fully available for the each day. We will start and end on time.
