Speakers: Ryan O'Shea, FMI
Presented by ABC's Strategic Partner, Viewpoint 

WEBINAR DESCRIPTION
The focus of many construction organizations remains fixed on cost reduction and efficiency. With the downward pressure on price, contractors continue to examine areas of their business where waste, however large or small, is prevalent. As schedules contract, expectations rise and margins remain in a fragile balance, it is imperative that the construction industry examine its operations and develop sound, lean and efficient processes. Replicable tools and processes will help firms be competitive today and sustain an advantage tomorrow. 

Please join us for this special webinar, presented by FMI's Ryan O'Shea, where attendees will learn how to: 
  • Examine a general history of Lean Six Sigma and the practical construction applications of Lean tools, processes and behaviors
  • Understand truths and myths about Lean implementation and how a contracting firm can implement the DMAIC concept and reduce waste in any business process
  • Examine FMI’s P3 model (Process, Productivity Tools and People) and explore the correct way to drive efficiency and productivity
  • Create an integrated approach that is consistent, sustainable and replicable long-term to drive money to the bottom line
