Pipeline Workshop™ No. 6: Save the Date

Pipeline Workshop™ No. 6 will be held October 26-27, 2016, at the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.  The latest in the series of production management workshops in the open, sponsored Pipeline channel, it is sponsored, once again, by BUILDER.  Clark Ellis and Brandon Hart (Continuum Advisory Group) again join me upfront.

“The exercises and processes opened my eyes to immediate steps I had to take to become a better builder.”  (Lusant Ordonez, CEO, Zenodro Homes, Altamonte Springs, FL)

3-Ponte Vedra Inn & Club

Welcome to the most intense, demanding, interactive, and challenging homebuilding production management learning experience on the planet.

It keeps getting better.

In recent workshops, we lengthened the schedule, enabling us to do more with the deeper-dive velocity accelerators;  for Pipeline Workshop™ No. 6, we are doing three velocity accelerators:  Critical Chain Project Management, Epic Partnering™, and Business Process Improvement.

We continue to refine the scenarios in the production simulator and business game known as the Pipeline game™.  Over the course of all the Pipeline workshops™, we have:  (1) made the game shorter and faster;  (2) switched to an operating statement format that mirrors the specific attributes of a homebuilding operation;  (3) found ways to transfer the learning and knowledge with fewer games, to do more, with less;  more learning, less time.

Pipeline workshops™ are unlike any other homebuilding conference.

The split is 70/30, simulation/case study to lecture;  the format is interactive and competitive, with Pipeline game™ production simulations and the RB Builders: Lessons from the Pipeline© business case study that test attendees’ understanding of production management and ability to solve production problems;  the Pipeline workshop™ builds an intuitive, instinctive understanding of production principles and disciplines;  it draws the distinction between being in the homebuilding business, and being in the business of building homes.

And – we make it all fun:  the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club is a terrific ocean resort venue;  greenside reception at the end of the first day;  recommendations on outstanding local dining;  plenty of opportunity for networking.

Creating the visual image of homebuilding production;  establishing the connection between operating decisions and business outcomes;  building a new way of thinking systemically towards solving core problems and managing constraints;  managing limited capacity and resources, doing more with less;  dealing with variation;  managing homebuilding production as the multi-project type of workflow that it truly is;  and placing the emphasis on the actions that accelerate velocity.

This is what a Pipeline workshop™ is all about.

Come.  Participate.  Learn.
