RefinemySite is the Lean collaboration platform powered by Robert Bosch Power Tools GmbH has partnered with Construction Accelerator as its exclusive training partner.
FREMONT, CA: RefinemySite, the Lean collaboration platform powered by Robert Bosch Power Tools GmbH, a division of the Robert Bosch Group, has announced its collaboration with Construction Accelerator as its exclusive training partner and producer of short-form videos and educational courses for the RefinemySite Lean construction platform.
With the social distancing practices still being encouraged across jobsites globally, the teams can no longer meet in large groups for regular huddles or training. The robust training budgets of years have also shifted, being reprioritized and reallocated to accommodate the essential jobsite changes. To control such difficulties, RefinemySite started working with Construction Accelerator in April 2020 so that it can develop easily digestible training materials that can be used by the construction teams to refresh their skills.
The Construction Accelerator training platform has offered its store to more than 100 videos, from three to nine minutes each and designed for busy schedules and short attention spans. The RefinemySite training resources, developed by Construction Accelerator, cover Lean topics like design, planning and scheduling, problem-solving, collaboration, and process improvement. The partnership of RefinemySite and Construction Accelerator will help the Lean construction training is accessible for contractors, designers, project owners, and team members at every level. It is an affordable online solution that provides quality training that will not disrupt demanding work schedules.
“Time is one of the most valuable assets on the jobsite, which is why we sought to develop training resources that cater to busy contractors,” explains Rafael Franca, head of business RefinemySite North America, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. “We’re pleased to partner with Construction Accelerator to produce bite-sized videos to help teams train in a more efficient and socially distant way. Now, all a team member needs are a few short minutes to learn how RefinemySite facilitates Lean construction.”
“The Construction Accelerator videos are perfect for our industry— microlearning sessions with solid content and professional production quality,” notes Warren Kiesel, director, curriculum development, Associated General Contractors of America.
