Exploring Project Management

October 9, 2006

  When people ask me about the work I have been doing recently,  I tell them about the last 10 to 15 years or so, and then about meeting Greg Howell and his partner Hal Macomber 2 years ago.  I found them both to be very interesting, and our time together lead to finding that what we both have in common was a commitment to remove the suffering found in project management.  I didnt know at the time how serious Greg and Hal were about it, and I didnt know there was a world wide community sharing in these same concerns.   One of the next steps I would like to take is to organize a group of people from our local community to explore more deeply the practices of management, the problems, and new ideas and solutions.  I see this as an ongoing opportunity to learn, and connect ourselves to the larger international community for lean construction.  I recognize that some may think our practices at the level of residential may be too different from the larger commercial companies.  But it has been my experience that the kinds of problems they have sound very similar to the kinds of problems we have.  So I invite you to use this blog so we can begin to explore what’s working, and what is not working, and what we can do about it.   Tell me what it is that you would like to see as a priority for our focus, what breakdowns should we focus on first?
