As COVID-19 continues to introduce uncertainty into the world, don’t forget that you have lean principles and techniques that can help you introduce and maintain order and structure in your projects and your personal lives.
Help your projects and yourself stay focused on continuous improvement despite the disruptions at work and at home! Successful lean projects achieve outstanding project results in the schedule, cost, and quality because project teams prioritize being reliable in keeping promises, achieving continuous workflow, and learning to see and remove waste to ensure value generation by all work activities.
In this webinar, Cynthia Tsao, Owner of Navilean LLC and Founder of Building AEC Learning, will discuss ideas for:
- Leveraging the Last Planner® System to improve planning on your projects (especially if they are put on hold due to regulatory requirements)
- Improving the logistics on your projects
- Continuing your own lean learning and development by accessing resources online and reaching out to others
- Practicing what we preach as many of us deal with the challenges of working from home

Since 1997, Cynthia collaborates with fellow educators and researchers in academia and practice to help the Owner-Architect-Engineer-Contractor (OAEC) industry understand and leverage Lean Project Delivery to dramatically improve project outcomes and thus, better serve society. Cynthia has organized, facilitated, and presented at over 50 trade associations and university events. She has worked on multi-project engagements with US-based general contractors and personally coached over 80 field superintendents/site managers.

She also helps companies and project teams sustain their lean journeys by determining how to efficiently use and enhance team member capabilities to foster a culture of respect, continuous learning, and continuous improvement.
