A breakthrough transformation in the facilities industry is underway. It is the implementation of Lean to dramatically cut spending, streamline workflow processes, reduce energy use, and use less space, less time, and less manpower. This is the new management frontier in the facility asset arena for lowering the cost of both constructing and operating facilities.

Lean processes are the result of identifying major inefficiencies and instituting key process changes that create value, reduce waste, streamline workflow, reduce human effort, lower capital investment, and shrink timelines. In the facilities arena, this means big capital savings and reduced timelines on construction projects, and lower costs of facilities operations and management.

Attend the St. Petersburg conference March 30-31 to benchmark your management initiatives against the cost-saving, value-increasing successes of others. This is the place to get ahead of the curve on Lean thinking, implementation strategies, and institution-wide policy and process changes for FM and capital projects.

Specifically, you’ll learn:

- The application of Lean principles to the facilities challenge
- New analytical methods to identify waste and inefficiency
- Lean initiatives to cut facilities operating costs
- Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) to cut capital costs & project timelines
- Building Information Modeling (BIM) for design, construction, & operations
- Lean facility design for efficient work flow and cost reduction
- Sustainability and energy policies, programs, and projects
- Techniques for training, staffing, and structuring Lean initiatives
