ABOUT the company
Field Driven Lean is a Lean Coaching firm serving the Design and Construction Industry. Let Field Driven Lean assist you on your Lean journey through our core principles of Respect for People, Always Add Value, Reliable Commitments, Enhanced Collaboration and Communication and Action-Based Learning.
Our Mission is to help People have better experiences on Construction Projects. We believe that Lean Adoption and Integration are key to those better experiences.
RESPECT FOR PEOPLE
Respect For People is the foundation of Lean thinking and the basis for all Lean tools. Respect For People means that everyone has a voice and is heard. It means that we all hold ourselves and each other accountable so that the whole team is successful.
Studies have shown that up to 30% of Construction projects don't finish on time. Scheduling and planning are largely reactive on many projects. The Last Planner System (LPS) is a great way to alleviate these issues. Reliable Commitments are the cornerstones of Pull Planning and LPS.
ALWAYS ADD VALUE
Waste diminishes meaning in the work we do. However, reducing waste is also a reactive activity. Adding value is a proactive activity that adds meaning to the work we do. When our focus is on Always Adding Value, then we create Win-Win-Win-Win outcomes for everyone.
ACTION BASED LEARNING
People learn better when there is action included with learning rather than just sitting through lectures. Rather than FDL telling you about Lean, we want to experience it with you, to go along on our Lean Journey together. Action Based Learning means we get to learn together.
Enhanced Collaboration and Communication are an outcome of Lean Training and Coaching. Most Construction project failures are a result of lack of collaboration and clear communication. We use Liberating Structures to achieve better communication and collaboration in all our engagements.
“I enrolled in Brian's Level Up with Lean Program in 2021 and am so grateful that our paths crossed. I am thankful for his community-building, leadership, vulnerability, and genuine desire to improve the construction industry. Our once-monthly meetings provide a space to collaborate and learn from peers, solve problems and hold each other accountable for our commitments. We get vulnerable and authentic with each other while examining topics like quality, incremental improvements, respect for people, Conditions of Satisfaction, flow, and whatever problem a group member is working through that month. Without hesitation, I can say that I've 'Leveled-Up' in terms of my confidence, understanding of lean philosophy and principles, and most importantly, how to successfully turn those key learnings into action."
