The Oklahoma Heart Hospital Gemba Walk

The Oklahoma Heart Hospital Project Gemba Walk will focus on one of the key concepts of Lean management, Flow. Gemba, going to the place where value is created is the act of observing a project’s moving parts from administrative tasks to specific construction processes to look for opportunities to eliminate waste and improve quality. The tour will start with an overview of the Gemba process, followed by putting Gemba into practice with a project tour. McCarthy and trade partners are working on the 6-story, $125M addition to Oklahoma Heart Hospital’s South Campus. See how the project is piloting the Simple Interior Production Schedule (SIPS) to create predictable flow, project alignment and trust.

Attendees from cross functional roles as designers, constructors, owners, trade partners and associations are welcome to participate. No previous Lean experience is required.

Speaker: Joe Lewendowski, McCarthy Building Companies
