Pipeline Workshops™: Disruptive Learning

“The concept of production building being a ‘pipeline’, along with the simple and straight-forward concepts discussed in this seminar, made this one of the most eye-opening experiences I have ever had when it comes to learning about production building.”  (Patrick Bukszar, Dir. Construction Services, Essex Homes, Lexington, SC)

“The Pipeline workshop™ was an eye opening experience.  I took away invaluable insight on what it takes to operate a profitable homebuilding company.”   (Daniel Hopkins, Director of Purchasing/Estimating, Jeff Benton Homes, Huntsville, AL)

“It was quite intense, challenging, and not for the intellectually lazy”. (Scott Sedam, President, TrueNorth Development, South Lyon, MI)

In relentlessly improving Pipeline workshops™, our intent – simply, plainly – is to open the eyes of the builders that attend, open them wider than they have ever been opened, and to make the learning as disruptive as possible to conventional, long-accepted ways of thinking.

We don’t want to just inform attendees’ thinking, we want to reform it.

Specifically:

♦  Pipeline games™ are a production simulator and a business game; they are what make Pipeline workshops™ so intense, so interactive, so competitive, and so worthwhile.  Already the best production sim in the business, we have made the Pipeline game™ even better over the years, shortening its duration and making the operating statement look exactly like a homebuilding operation.

♦  RB Builders: Lessons from the Pipeline© is the business case that we developed specifically for Pipeline workshops™; it presents a set of problems related to a very realistic homebuilding operation, problems that attendees are required to solve;  it is a test that challenges their knowledge and understanding of production principles.

The use of Pipeline games™ and the business case means that a Pipeline workshop™ – already known for its unique, engaging format – is now even edgier, because that is where almost all of the learning occurs.

Pipeline workshops™:  creating a visual image of homebuilding production;  making the connection between operating decisions and business outcomes they drive;  building a new way of systems-thinking – a paradigm shift – towards solving core problems, managing constrained capacity, dealing with variation and uncertainty, and managing homebuilding production as the type and mix of workflow that it actually is;  emphasizing the actions that accelerate velocity.

 

Come.  Participate.  Learn.

The next Pipeline workshop™ will be held at the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, on October 18-19, 2017.  The cost is $875.00 per person;  for team pricing, inquire here (flgroves@saiconsulting.com).
