We focus on transforming your culture and people — the drivers of your performance
Automation, digital disruption, and climate risks are just a few of the forces changing the face of the built environment — pushing organizations to adapt. Not only that, 53% of typical construction projects finish behind schedule, and most owners and project teams say they are not satisfied with the project delivery experience.
Advances in technology and software, such as new tools for scheduling and planning, can help save time and money. But alone, these tools cannot solve poor project performance. To adapt and thrive, built environment leaders need a cultural transformation — at the project level and across their organization.
Haley & Aldrich’s Lean coaches work alongside your people to build their ability to problem solve and continually seek improvement — and we do so through practical hands-on engagement. As engineers, scientists, and builders ourselves, we know bringing people together to solve problems while the work is happening is critical. Why? Because theory and discussion will only get your team so far. For true transformation, your team needs to apply new knowledge and ideas in its daily work.
To build systemic change and drive new thinking, we first assess your teams, people, and processes to see how they operate together. This assessment allows us to deeply understand your organization so we can customize our approach and solutions to your needs. We then work closely with you and your teams to design and manage the improvements.
We take a systematic and holistic approach, yet we also go beyond the Lean toolbox to consider management systems, mindsets, and behaviors that are critical for sustained change. Our team relies on our expertise in Lean thinking and methods as well as our training and experience in design thinking, organizational psychology, and various leadership and behavioral assessment tools. And we don’t just introduce new tools — we actively partner with your staff to ensure that the new behaviors we introduce stay in practice. Our mission is to set your organization on a path of sustained excellence.
