Emily Snyder, Public Works Transportation (PWT) Project Manager II and Denver Black Belt, along with Justin Schmitz, PWT Engineer & Architect Supervisor, as well as Denver Black Belt, and their team (Rachael Bronson, Michael Koslow & Dan Raine), increased the use of standard work and visual management in the Bike Lane Implementation Process by 90%.

Additionally, these improvements have allowed the PWT bike team to improve their internal and external communications, as well as provide more relevant information to each other and their customers on demand.

Now PWT’s bike team has a better understanding of their schedules, a better way to efficiently & passively communicate project statuses, documented standard work, and a way to “screen” proposed projects to assess constraints, challenges and opportunities.  Not only that, but now the process is visually engaging, consistent and less wasteful overall – lean.
