    2. 2. It's what you learn after you know it all that counts. – John Wooden UCLA Basketball Coach
    3. 3. Lean Principles <ul><li>Lean Revolution </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Toyota Production System </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lean Thinking </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project-Based Production </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reliability before Productivity </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Collaborative Design </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Rethinking Construction </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lean Solutions </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Five Lean Principles </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Customer Value </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Value Stream </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flow </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pull </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pursue Perfection </li></ul></ul>
    4. 4. Five Big Ideas Lean Philosophy for Projects Collaborate; Really Collaborate Optimize the Whole Tightly Couple Learning w/ Action Projects as Networks of Commitment Increase Relatedness
    5. 5. <ul><li>Collaborate, Really Collaborate in Design, Planning, and Execution </li></ul><ul><li>Finding and working to a purpose held in common. </li></ul><ul><li>Discover why others are there. </li></ul><ul><li>Aim for coherence: Align rewards and systems </li></ul><ul><li>Pay attention to timing level of detail </li></ul><ul><li>Learn from people who will perform </li></ul><ul><li>Create situations for surprise contributions </li></ul><ul><li>Reinforce positive iterations (learning) </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid negative iterations (rework) </li></ul>

    7. 7. Possibilities from Collaboration <ul><li>Design and construction are iterative </li></ul><ul><ul><li>solutions to a series of problems </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>possible solution often creates another problem </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>art of the conversation allows creative, yet realistic exploration of the possible </li></ul></ul>
    8. 8. 2. Increase Relatedness among All Project Participants. <ul><li>People come together as strangers on AEC projects. </li></ul><ul><li>Healthcare projects require learning, innovation, and collaboration. </li></ul><ul><li>That takes deep relatedness. </li></ul><ul><li>Learn to build relationships intentionally. </li></ul><ul><li>Key skill is listening. </li></ul>
    9. 9. Transforming Teams: Building Relatedness of the Players <ul><li>Relationships Based on Prudent Trust </li></ul><ul><li>Teams don’t have meaningless players </li></ul><ul><li>Teams participate from beginning to completion </li></ul><ul><li>Execution virtually never relies on only one player! </li></ul><ul><li>Team members learn to play the game together. </li></ul>M/E/P CORE GROUP Structure Landscape Material Handling Vertical Transp.

    10. 10. 3. Projects Are Networks Of Commitments <ul><li>There are three kinds of work: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Design (from nothing to something) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Material transformation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Coordination of action </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Coordination is possible among task performers in the conversations people have with each other </li></ul>
    11. 11. Work in Projects <ul><li>Transformation work – physical “touch” work turns inputs into outputs </li></ul><ul><li>Making and Keeping Commitments – the basic work of all business </li></ul><ul><li>Design – Creating Conditions of Satisfaction </li></ul>
    12. 12. The “Physics” of Coordination Conditions of Satisfaction & Date of Completion CUSTOMER Request “ Will You?” Preparation 1 3 4 PO Inquiry Negotiation Clarification & Negotiation Signed PROVIDER 2 Performance Declare Complete “ I’m Done” Accepted Submitted Commit “ I Promise I WILL ” Assurance Declare Satisfaction “ Thank you” Conditions of Satisfaction & Completion Date
    13. 13. Building the Network of Commitments in Planning <ul><li>Hold planning conversations in public. </li></ul><ul><li>Identify key milestones to deliver the promise of the project. Identify long lead items and make requests. </li></ul><ul><li>Build phase schedules with those responsible for the work in each phase. Establish rules for speaking up. </li></ul><ul><li>Make work ready by screening, requesting and securing reliable promises. Only release when ready and needed. </li></ul><ul><li>Secure promises for daily task completions from each performer or Last Planner </li></ul><ul><li>Report completions each day. Identify reasons for incompletions. Take action. Re-plan. </li></ul>
    14. 14. 4. Optimize the Project <ul><li>Optimize at the project level </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Not the subcontractor performer group </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Not the task level </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Think work streams </li></ul><ul><li>Think systems </li></ul><ul><li>Think customer outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>Pursue planning reliability before worker productivity </li></ul>
    15. 15. Lean Design: An Overview © Lean Construction Institute 2003, used with permission. * Involve downstream players in upstream decisions * Alternate between all-group meetings and task force activities * Create and exploit opportunities to increase value in every phase of the project Organize in Cross Functional Teams Pursue a set based strategy * Select from alternatives at the last responsible moment * Share incomplete information * Share ranges of acceptable solutions Structure design work to approach the lean ideal * Simultaneous design of product and process * Consider decommissioning, commissioning, assembly, fabrication, purchasing, logistics, detailed engineering, and design * Shift detailed design to fabricators and installers Minimize Negative Iteration * Pull scheduling * Design Structure Matrix * Strategies for managing irreducible loops Use Last Planner System of Production Control * Try to make only quality assignment * Make work ready within a lookahead period * Measure PPC * Identify and act on reasons for plan failure Use technologies that facilitate lean design * Shared geometry; single model * Web based interface
    16. 16. Embrace Uncertainty <ul><li>Modern science has moved well beyond a fixation on exact prediction and control; it has learned to accept unpredictability as an unavoidable and, at times, even beneficial aspect of the world, as a resource that can sometimes be harnessed. Mark Buchanan, Power Laws and the New Science of Complexity Management , Strategy+Business, Spring 2004 </li></ul>
    17. 17. 5. Tightly couple action with learning <ul><li>Toyota calls it single piece flow </li></ul><ul><li>For so long we’ve misunderstood what Toyota was doing </li></ul><ul><li>They have designed their whole system of work to align with customer demand and to give performers throughout the process opportunity to learn while in action </li></ul><ul><li>Applying the scientific method - PDCA. </li></ul>
    18. 18. Designing Work for Learning <ul><li>Experimentation </li></ul><ul><li>Single-Piece Flow </li></ul><ul><li>Habits for Feedback </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Plus/Delta Reviews </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Five Why Analysis </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Planning that Anticipates Learning </li></ul>
    19. 19. <ul><li>The tough part is that many times you’ve got to change before the real requirement to change is necessarily seen. That means people will make mistakes. </li></ul><ul><li>You’ve got to give people the opportunity to make mistakes, to fail, and not to crucify them for doing that. </li></ul><ul><li>Art Collins, Medtronic, CEO’s on Innovation, </li></ul><ul><li>Fortune Magazine , March 8, 2004 </li></ul>
    20. 20. Reaching a New Frontier: L eadership, Planning and Management <ul><li>Traditional Thought </li></ul><ul><li>Leadership dictates direction </li></ul><ul><li>Planning is partitioned by trades/disciplines and is linear. It is predictive and generally fixed, setting parameters for management </li></ul><ul><li>Management controls are inflexible, autocratic - processes are fixed and measures are isolated and generally historical </li></ul><ul><li>Lean Thought </li></ul><ul><li>Leadership facilitates collaborative direction </li></ul><ul><li>Planning is collaborative, project based and seeks to integrate efforts to eliminate negative iterations. It learns as project evolves </li></ul><ul><li>Management develops a “network of commitments” to implement plan, evolves intelligence, measures are integrated and proactive </li></ul>
    21. 21. Limitations of the Current Approach <ul><li>Activity Centered: Ignores the effect of workflow variation on performance. </li></ul><ul><li>Separates downstream players from upstream activities </li></ul><ul><li>Command and control creates a commitment free zone </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Requires motivation, ignores promising. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fails to produce trust. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Push Planning cannot Coordinate the specialists </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Control only as tracking misses the best opportunity for control </li></ul>© Lean Construction Institute 2003, used with permission.
    22. 22. Project Management Works <ul><li>When Practices, Systems and Leadership produce coherent commitments connecting the promise of the project to the work of specialists, and coordinates their actions. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Creating reliable workflow within and between workgroups </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Allowing decisions to be delayed to the last responsible moment. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Adjusting appropriately in the moment to increase value and reduce waste. </li></ul></ul>© Lean Construction Institute 2003, used with permission.
