Lean Congress Preview

Join us for a preview of the following Lean Congress Presentations. These teams were selected to present at the LCI Congress this October, and will be practicing their presentations and sharing their experience with us!

Presentation 1: Karpinski / Lean Project Consulting / Bostwick
If you want to overcome design and planning challenges, first look at project culture. Project culture influences people's actions and engagement, which in turn contributes to success or failure. A poor project culture leads to waste related to people and actions. It happens in the gray area, during side bar conversations, lack of clarity when team members say they understand, when they miss reliable promises. These are breakdowns in the process of planning during design. In other words, implementing Lean tools is not enough. Without a positive, respectful, and collaborative culture, your Lean journey will fail.

Presentation 2: Lighthouse Electric
Getting information to the field is like sending printed pictures to Grandma! If you’re Information is Inaccessible, Unfiltered, Duplicated, Slow, or flat our Expired, then this presentation may be for you! Our company is actively pursuing solving these problems through a combination of Lean and Digital Transformation. Our aim is to share our mistakes, failures and successes trying to; upgrade Technology, Change Culture while obtaining buy-in, streamline the value stream and implement Paperless workflows. This information revolution has been a catalyst to some profound changes in our organization. Our journey started with transforming our paperless preconstruction workflow, through the use of BlueBeam, Autodesk, Revit and PlanGrid. This process showed the need for further innovation around Databasing, Education, Minimum Technology Competencies and Enterprise wide Training. As such we have begun to implement a complete SaaS Strategy around Rapid Application Development (RAD) which has integrated the correct information to the right people instantaneously throughout every single department.
