Leading the Next Generation - FMI 

West Des Moines
April 24, 2018
8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Leaders today are challenged to achieve more with less, enhance the performance and effectiveness of their staff, and grow the bottom line. Those who can do this consistently over time recognize that leadership is not about tactics, fads or spreadsheets. It is about a leader's ability to win the hearts, minds, and commitment of their people. However, our culture is changing so fast that the leadership of yesterday is not enough. This highly interactive session will help current and emerging leaders understand themselves, those they lead and the critical changes that are happening in today's construction environment.

Everyone related to the construction process has the incentive to get the project done faster and at a lower cost - from the project owners who want to see tangible results for their investment to the contractors and designers who want to do their job well and move on to the next project. Lean Construction is based on the holistic pursuit of continuous improvements aimed at minimizing costs and maximizing value on a construction project: planning, design, construction, activation, operations, maintenance, salvaging, and recycling.

The AGC Lean Construction Education Program (LCEP) is the curriculum available to help you reach these goals. The LCEP consists of seven units that instruct all aspects of Lean, allowing practitioners to benefit from these principles. Construction professionals at all experience levels will learn the building blocks necessary to transform their projects and companies into a Lean operating system. In addition, this course provides tools to help participants recognize sources of variation on their own projects, examine variation’s effect on operations, and mitigate the effects of variation in their every-day work.

It’s time to change our way of thinking. In this webinar, we’ll discuss the epidemic of distracted driving, focusing particularly on issues in the commercial industry. We’ll also offer suggestions on how employers can create, adopt and enforce a cell phone safety policy.
