Jody Seubert Among the First to Earn LEAN Credential
Menasha, Wis. (Nov. 4, 2015) – Jody Seubert, productivity manager with Faith Technologies, a leading electrical, engineering, and technology systems contractor, has earned the Certificate of Management – LEAN Construction (CM-LEAN) credential from the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).
LEAN Construction is a combination of design and construction with an adaption of lean manufacturing principles and practices to the end-to-end design and construction process. The LEAN Construction credential is brand new to the construction industry, and implementation can lead to greater productivity, higher quality construction, greater customer satisfaction, improved safety, and reduced costs and project schedules.
“LEAN offers advanced tools that help construction companies improve processes and collaboration. Faith Technologies is able to use LEAN to collaborate at a very high level between all departments and projects in all areas,” said Seubert. “I will continue to use what I have learned from CM-LEAN to coach and teach our project leaders on the need to create more efficiency in everything we do.”
Seubert started his journey to get LEAN certified more than a year ago, and is among the first nationwide to receive the accreditation. To receive the certification, Seubert completed seven units and one final exam. “The AGC credential is being embraced by construction companies nationwide,” said Seubert. “By having someone certified on staff, Faith Technologies is able to prove to its clients we are serious about LEAN construction techniques and practices.”
