Webinar: Lean Workstructuring: Perspectives from Miron and Boldt – September 20
Posted September 6th, 2012
Leading practitioners of Lean Workstructuring will provide their perspectives on how their organizations use Lean Practices – specifically related to Workstructuring – to improve the delivery of projects. The unique perspectives of the panelists will provide a depth of understanding how these practices can be applied to other organizations. Workstructuring seeks to eliminate waste on the jobsite or in offices by improving productivity through the elimination (or at least reduction) of workers waiting on work or work waiting on workers. Enhanced coordination between trades (on the jobsite) or between the various parties constructing the project is the goal. Techniques discussed will include Pull Planning and the Last Planner® System. Participants will learn the value of Pull versus Push planning.
This webinar will be held September 20, 2012 from 2:00 – 3:30 PM (ET).
