Pipeline Workshops: Disruptive Learning

Our goal is to continuously improve the Pipeline workshop™ experience.

The Pipeline game™ – which is both a production simulator and a business game, and what makes Pipeline workshops™ so intense, so interactive, so competitive, and so worthwhile – was already the best in the business;  this past year, we made it better, by shortening the duration and making the operating statement exactly like a homebuilding operation.  As a result, every operating decision that a team makes is now more consequential, the outcomes now easier to comprehend.

Clark Ellis and Brandon Hart of Continuum Advisory Group continue in their presentation and facilitation roles, bringing added heft:  CAG extends the legacy of FMI Corporation in the residential construction vertical space.


Already known for its unique, engaging format, a Pipeline workshop™ is now even edgier in that regard;  almost all of the learning now occurs in production simulations and in business cases that mirror homebuilding operations.  Attendees are required to solve problems that challenge their knowledge and understanding of production principles.

The learning is decidedly disruptive to conventional, long-accepted ways of thinking;  Scott Sedam has aptly described a Pipeline workshop™ as being “intense, challenging, and not for the intellectually lazy”.

Creating a visual image of homebuilding production.  Making the connection between operating decisions and business outcomes.  Building a new way of thinking systemically – building a paradigm shift – towards solving core problems, managing limited capacity, dealing with variation, managing homebuilding production as the type of workflow that it truly is.  Placing an emphasis on the actions that accelerate velocity.

Join us.


The next Pipeline workshop™ is at the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, on October 14-15, 2015.  Cost is $795.00.  Early registration, open through July 31, 2015, is $645.00.
