MEET TERRANCE STERETT

Driven to Build

Terrance comes from a long line of builders and pilots: his grandfather, uncle, and father were all in construction and aviation, and his grandmother was even a stunt pilot. Terrance, who lives in an aviation community near Tampa, got his pilot’s license in 2019 and has since earned his instrument rating, his multiengine rating, and his complex and high-performance endorsements. Those certifications open doors for using the aircraft, including travel for work and fun, like vacations and competitive spearfishing tournaments.

LEAN JOURNEY

"Eliminate Waste in All I Do"

Terrance has always been inclined to find ways to eliminate waste in everything he does in both his personal life and professional life. Terrance has always gravitated to Lean principles. He learned a lot about it when he did construction work for Toyota Motor Manufacturing for four years. Toyota applies lean in everything they do.

Terrance was always intrigued by the power given to their employees with continuous improvement principles. Their workers could suggest improvements to the production lines. If that improvement made that worker's job easier by eliminating one step or movement in every task for that day, the company would spend the money to make the change. 

After seeing this first hand while working there, Terrance did his Master's in Civil Engineering project on Value Stream mapping. He saw the benefits of using lean principles on many jobs. Not all lean principles work for all types of projects. A leader and his team need to work together and decide what will and will not work for that particular project and/or team.
