1+1=3? Forging a Key Partnership between Unions and Lean

Lean practices are taking hold in New England as project RFPs increasingly ask companies how they may use Lean tools and techniques to assist in project delivery. But what does this mean for Unions and their partners? Join us for a conversation about how Lean can help Unions and how Unions can help Lean. In particular, we will explore the following questions:

• What is Lean project delivery and how does it generate better project outcomes?

• How can Lean improve daily work for Union members?

• How can Unions prepare their members to excel on Lean projects?

• How can Contractors + Unions partner in Lean training and implementation?

Project teams report that successful Lean implementation results in better productivity and safety for all Trade Partners. Participate in the dialogue with our featured panelists from 8:00-9:30am to hear firsthand accounts and discuss the benefits of forging a key partnership between Unions and Lean. Those interested are welcome to join us afterwards for a work session with the Iron Workers Union to develop an outline for a pilot Lean training program.
