Lean Article

"The huddle allows problems to surface early and daily adjustments to be made in response to changing and unexpected conditions. Often these quick adjustments allow the project to remain on plan without significant replanning." This sentence from the article below is a great summary of the value Daily Huddles bring to project teams. The daily huddle is the single most valuable meeting I attend each morning and has drastically changed my workflow. Not convinced that daily huddles are for you? Check out the article below by Tom Richert and see the value daily huddles bring to construction AND pre construction teams. Total read time 3 min.

Lean Podcast

On a construction utilizing lean construction practices to their fullest extent, you will have multiple huddles throughout the day. Throughout these huddles, many action items will come out. How does a project management team know that all tasks are being handled? How does a team know they don't have multiple people working on the same item, wasting time? The TEAM morning huddle helps ensure the appropriate people are working on each task. Total Listen Time 8 min.
