Looking forward to LCI Canada“LeanWORKS” Conference in Montreal, April 30-May 2. This will be my third time attending and participating. Both times I thought it was well worth my time. And this year, included in the many interesting presentations, I have the opportunity to take part in three:
Advanced Lean Bootcamp – Tuesday, April 30 Training Day
It is a full day to get a grounding in core lean concepts and principles applied to the design and construction process. You will get out of your seat to live what you are learning. You will also get a head start on several valuable lean tools such as 5S and Last Planner System. Brian McEachern and Eric Lusis, PCL’s US and Canada Lean Managers and I will lead the training.

What is the difference between solving problems and continuous improvement? What are the key elements needed to engage people in thinking about and improving their work? How do we put these elements into practice as a system of continuous improvement? The answer those questions,I will join Paul Frolick, PCL’s Process Improvement Leader in Toronto.
5S – Bringing Lean to the Field – Thursday, May 2 at 10:15am
Along with PCL Superintendent David Crowe from BC, we will see that 5S is so much more than organizing our job site. It is a key to bringing Lean thinking to front line field workers. Learn how to fully utilize 5S to improve flow, productivity, safety and quality on the job site. Learn how Sort,Straighten, Shine, Standardize and Sustain become the basis for a Lean field operation.
