LCI Alabama Community of Practice Presents Lean Coffee

Friday, December 8, 2017
HOAR Construction
2 Metroplex Drive, Suite 400
Birmingham, Alabama
8:30 AM – 10:00 AM (CST)

We will join Lean Construction Institute (LCI) for Lean Coffee at HOAR Construction in Birmingham, Alabama. Lean Coffee is a safe, small, and low-pressure environment where participants can take part in an open conversation about topics that are relevant to our lean community. This may include problems you’re solving, issues you want to resolve, or lessons you’ve learned on your lean journey.

Participants from cross-functional roles as designers, constructors, owners, trade partners, and associations propose discussion topics around any subject about which they want to learn. Each proposer takes 15 to 30 seconds to pitch their topic, written on a sticky note, to the group. Once all topics have been pitched, voting begins to establish a priority for discussing the topics. Topics are then ordered from highest to lowest votes and examined accordingly. Participants will receive 8 minutes of time to discuss the topic. After 8 minutes, there will be a “thumbs up / thumbs down” to decide whether or not the discussion should continue. Thumbs up equals 4 more minutes on the clock. This happens until it is agreed that the topic has been discussed to satisfaction. Takeaways are considered and then the topic with the next largest amount of votes is addressed.
