We first instill the skills and knowledge to improve the team's capability, productivity, and performance. Trainings come in many forms from studying a book, to tool-specific training, to multi-day Lean Construction bootcamps with entire project team.
Once teams have the basic training, we provide coaching in-action as they apply the tools and processes to their work. We believe practice does not 'make 'perfect,' but rather it 'makes permanent.' We don't look for perfection, just daily and weekly progress.
Our aim is to develop Lean Champions within our client's organizations. We do this over the course of the one or several projects, through personal interactions with the team members. We seek to reinforce their new role as Lean leaders and company change agents.
On Point Lean Consulting trains, coaches, and mentors project teams in Lean Construction principles, culture, and tools.
The Result: Individuals and organizations who are equipped to quickly apply the lessons and drive superior project outcomes on their current and future projects.

As the saying goes, a journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step. Let us help you get off to a good start as well as maintain the learning and adoption of Lean practices throughout your organization. Whether a single pilot project or multi-project, multi-discipline effort we can help.
Everyone has to start somewhere. Many clients start with a pilot project to learn and find the fit between Lean Construction and their current project delivery processes. It is likely that you already use some Lean processes, but highly unlikely you use them all or to their fullest extent.
Pull planning is usually the start of the Lean Construction processes on the site. It gets everyone on the same page with respect to the work flow and sequence and really focuses on the handoffs between the trades. Takt Planning and Takt Control puts the plan into steady flow to increase throughput and decrease time to complete.
On Point Lean has developed a 25-point Last Planner System Maturity Assessment as well as an 8-point IPD Maturity Assessment to help teams understand their current progress and develop action plans to improve.
On Point Lean offers tool-specific coaching in Visual Control and 5S, Choosing by Advantages (CBA), A3 Thinking and Problem Solving, Waste Walks (Gemba Walks), Root Cause Analysis, and of course, The Last Planer System of Production Control (LPS).
Many clients start their journey with book study on Lean Principles, Lean Leadership or other relevant topic. Let On Point Lean facilitate these discussions for maximum absorption, retention and application by the team.
