When you hear the term ‘Big Room’, what image does that conjure up? Are you thinking of a large, open space where a big group of people can congregate? Within the realm of Lean Project Delivery, at a very basic level, you would be correct. The Big Room is a space where the project team can meet to bring the project design to life through Target Value Delivery and create a plan to deliver the project with the Last Planner System®.
However, the purpose of the Big Room goes well beyond that of being a meeting place. It is a place where teams are formed, expected behaviors are defined, and conditions of satisfaction are what drives collaborative decision making. It is a place where commitments are made and trust is built through the delivery of promises. The Big Room environment fosters behaviors that lead to high levels of collaboration, where the goals of the project become paramount to the team involved. The Big Room is where the culture of a successful project is nurtured and all involved grow into a cohesive, high performing team.
In this webinar, you will learn about the operation and benefits of the Big Room and come to understand that it is about much more than just a place to meet. When set up and implemented properly, the Big Room creates the environment to allow those on your project team to deliver their best effort for your project, creating maximum value for clients.
