While we are in the early stages of our lean journey, we are in the process of implementing the lean concepts that have transformed the manufacturing and commercial industries and apply them to our core focus areas.
Currently, the lean term “Project Team” only refers to the employees of one company. As a general contractor, we at Total-Western seek to redefine the term and transform it into a “One Team Mentality” – encompassing all other companies, trade partners, subcontractors and architects to best meet the needs of our clients.
This transformation is currently underway in our company culture and collective mindsets as we are starting on both ends of the spectrum, engaging our foreman and working crews out in the field as well as our senior leadership team.
Staying true to our PASS program and its doctrine of continuous improvement, Total-Western is using the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle and evaluating our processes at every level to provide maximum value to our business partners.
