There are a number of construction process enhancements that have emerged over the past few decades including Lean, BIM, WorkFace Planning, and Advanced Work Packaging. While each of these methods has its own merits, the most fundamental change is coming from the shift to agile project management. The key to agile is the efficiency and continuous improvement that results from planning, tracking, and reporting progress via a set of cyclical “sprints”. The most basic definition is that agile breaks a large project into
smaller discrete increments of work to provide better visibility and accountability.
In short, it addresses productivity, communication, and efficiency issues that are prevalent in traditional project management such as:
- What’s the best way to track progress on a construction project?
- What’s the best way to collect data on status and progress of the project?
- How does agile fit in with other construction specific methodologies?
- How can agile benefit Engineering & Procurement?
- How can agile be combined with WorkFace Planning?
- How does agile work with constraint management?
- How does agile support team collaboration and management?
- How does agile impact my approach to team meetings?
- How do I know which agile tool is right for my organization?
- How can you effectively implement a new process and technology across an organization?
