Discipline = Agility

Far too many construction teams believe that standard processes, routines, training and disciplined execution will stifle their creativity.

It is actually quite the opposite and when you flip that switch in thinking it begins to unlock amazing levels of performance.

Extreme agility stands on the foundation of rigorous discipline and training.

For most roles on the project team at least 90% of what we do falls within the lean definition of “Standard Work”.  Imagine a project team trained so well that they executed 90% of their work without much conscious thought - the equivalent of muscle memory.  

Boring right?  Wrong!  

The magic is that now the project team can put 100% of their creative problem solving towards the 10% of work that requires it the most.  This is the 10% of the work that adds the most value to the customer and to your company.


How much of your team’s creative problem solving and energy goes towards fixing things that should have been handled right the first time?  

What problems are not getting solved or are getting solved poorly because they are so busy working on other things?
