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 and re-form it.  We want to change their thinking about homebuilding production, and, in so doing, rebuild it as a new understanding of homebuilding production.

To that end, we use two terrific tools:

Both a production simulator and a business game, Pipeline games™ 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.

Developed specifically for Pipeline workshops™, the RB Builders: Lessons from the Pipeline© business case is a business case that 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 RB Builders: Lessons from the Pipeline© business case makes a Pipeline workshop™ – already known for its unique, engaging format – a much sharper learning experience.

Pipeline workshops™:  creating a visual image of homebuilding production;  making the connection between operating decisions and the business outcomes those decisions drive;  ushering in a new way of systems-oriented 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 enable builders to thrive on the velocity side of Return on Assets.

 

Come.  Participate.  Learn.

The next Pipeline workshop™ will be held at the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, on September 26-27, 2018.  The cost is $895.00 per person;  for team pricing, inquire here (flgroves@saiconsulting.com).
