Professional Excellence 

 

We provide hands-on training to tightly couple learning with action to not only develop lean thinkers, but also drive results in the workplace.

Education is the key to outstanding results.

 

Similar to any high-performing sports team or athlete, right-sized coaching greatly effects results.

 

Become a Lean Methods facilitator to add value to your stakeholders.

Our customizable training and coaching services can be scaled to support an organization, project team or one person.

"Excellent work of adjusting the training to fit the audience. I saw a noticeable difference in how field personnel see the benefits of lean, now we just need to develop the processes to put in place to execute work using lean principles." - PCL Superintendent 

WHAT WE DO

LYNX Professional Services

LYNX Professional Services leverages a lean process to teach and learn as a way of developing individual problem solvers who take initiative, demonstrate know-how, self-learn, and coach new individuals.

The first step of giving people the capability to leverage lean techniques and industry best practices is by establishing the lowest level of common understanding, and growing core elements that align with customer value and organizational purpose.  By empowering our people with the right information and resources for learning, such as Lean Construction Institute (LCI) content, they can begin their own lean journey towards excellence and continuous improvement. 

The LYNX Approach

Lean relies heavily on behaviors to drive outcomes and results. Our approach tightly couples learning with action to fast-launch teams and ensure every professional excels.  We achieve this by balancing the needs of people with a specific hands-on learning program. 

 

Developing ideal behaviors and “Lean thinkers” is achieved through education, exposure, and experience. 
       

        - Education – 25%
        - Exposure – 25%
        - Experience – 50%


Education is primarily provided in four formats outlined in green. Lean methods, including required training, should be part of every person's developmental goals while also focused on what they do, or will do, in an organization.  

Exposure starts with education and requires engagement and interaction from an individual or team. Study Action Teams encourage learners to discuss and put into practice what they read or observe. “Go and See” visits provide live exposure to Lean practices in action on jobsites or other workplaces. 
 

Experience is the best teacher and is the biggest factor in developing Lean understanding and behaviors. Learning by doing results in higher levels of retention and lasting results. “Learning by doing” benefits not only managers and leadership but has a significant positive impact on our people when they see leaders model the way and build culture.

Education Format

1.

Awareness training, such as Lean Foundations Workshop for introduction to concepts and sustained support.

2.

Just-In-Time training, such as the Last Planner System® project training/onboarding, to support healthy behavior and implementation of Lean method.

3.

Self-Taught training, such as a Study Action Team*, Construction Accelerator, or  reading books for practitioner individuals and teams.

4.

Learning-by-Doing, such as facilitated Value Stream Mapping or coaching project teams with 5S assessments for individuals and teams.
