Lean and Evidence-Based Design: Where to Begin

When: May 27, 2020
Time: 2:00pm Eastern

A partnership between Lean and Evidence-Based Design can transform your project outcomes. This integrated approach ensures you’re beginning with research and data collection to uncover the true why for the project, the root cause of issues in the current design and/or process and generating informed solutions to evaluate. Involving all stakeholders (subject matter experts, designers and implementers) from the beginning promotes a more inclusive decision-making process and better outcomes than with a traditional, siloed approach. Maximizing value to the customer, eliminating waste, and continuous improvement are at the core of Lean, while improving safety and quality are at the core of evidence-based design.

You will leave with tools and resources that can be applied on your next project.


Learning Objectives

  • To gain an understanding of how to build a business case with the entire team (owner, design firm, and contractor).
  • To explore the added value of integrating an Evidence Based Design (EBD) process and Lean methods to transform environments by researching the pain points a facility is experiencing, proposing improvements, and reducing the waste and rework in the design and construction process.
  • To identify and outline opportunities to incorporate both Lean and EBD during the various stages of design, construction and occupancy to improve safety, quality and project delivery.
  • To facilitate a goal setting session that identifies the primary areas for research and improvement.
