Jake and Felipe are a combination we all need this morning! For those of you that don’t Felipe well, follow him on social media or just LinkedIn. The man made a professional change recently but his impact, I suspect, will be the same if not greater. One of his many mantras that inspires me is, “Change the industry from within.” I couldn’t agree more and it takes strong leaders like him and Jake to clear a roadmap for the rest of us. Thank you!


What makes this show good is Felipe’s relatability. He’s that rare example of a person who can talk to and engage people from all walks of life whether it be the C-suite or the field. A don’t miss / listen twice kind of podcast.

The Definition of Progress

The EBFC Show is the best podcast out there for construction. I completely recommend it for entry level engineers all the way to division presidents.

Making it count

I am always glad that I have made time for the EBFC show. Felipe's voice still sound great at 2.0x! Felipe knows what we need to hear and he knows what his guest has to offer and he makes sure we get both.

Best Resource Out There

I listen and learn something new every episode. Best of all, Felipe and his guests are so relatable. We can all see ourselves in their setbacks as well as their successes. What’s more is the show gives us a roadmap on how to begin. Highly recommend!

Felipe is the best host

Felipe is a pro! He's thoughtful in his interviewing style and fun with the sound effects. Honored to be a guest on his show and I have recommended him to many others. Great topics and guests! Reena Friedman Watts Host of the Better Call Daddy Show

Just Awesome for any construction pro

Great guests and incredibly informational!

The EBFC Show

An amazing podcast to learn about the construction industry. I have been listening to this podcast since last year.

Lean Everyone Can Get Behind

This show is the one I recommend to people at work. It’s what’s needed in today’s field operations. Call it Operational Excellence/ call it Continuous Improvement/ call it Agile/ call it Innovation…no matter the name it’s all the same concept, Lean, and Felipe and his guests deliver the right conversations at the right time.

Wonderful discussions

Felipe is the master at interviewing and having engaging discussions. If you like interviews, this is the podcast for you! He does an absolutely amazing job!

It’s what’s on in my truck.

The EBFC Show and Felipe are a must listen. The quality of his production and guests are amongst the best the industry has to offer. Can’t wait to dig into the latest episode!

Solving Labor Productivity Issues

Great discussions as to what construction industry leaders/members need to start focusing on in order to drive growth for the future of their business & the industry in general…

Got the book!

Excellent episode once again. Definitely agree that owners are asking for lean more and more and this confirms it. What’s more is they know what to look for so faking it till you make it is already out the window. Can’t wait to read your book Felipe and begin integrating scrum into my approach.

Real, real useful, & real entertaining

I really enjoy hearing people's stories of struggles and victories. This brings it home because we can all relate to the experiences of the guests but Felipe chooses guests with lessons to teach or inspiring stories and that gives the inspiration needed to go create your own success story.

Superintendent Approved

Just finished The Lean Builder episode and this is what the field needs and wants. The EBFC Show is a good glimpse into the current status of construction. I listen to get information on Lean, Scrum, and Takt. The added bonus is that Felipe’s personality is a pick me up on those typical construction days we all experience.

You can feel Felipe's passion through your speakers!

Felipe does a great job digging into the issues that have the most impact on the future of the built environment!!!

Great Show!

Very informative podcast

The #1 construction podcast

I love this podcast! Never miss an episode

forward thinking show for this industry

It is so refreshing to listen to this show, and it gives me great hope for the future of the construction industry. If you're frustrated with the old-school mindset and are looking for practical, yet innovative, ideas to transform your job, team, or organization, this show is right for you!

I’d give more stars if I could

I highly recommend this show and Felipe. If you’re not listening - start. If you hate lean - give it a try. If you work in construction- turn it on. If you are looking to broaden your perspective - subscribe and get the latest episode going.

Lean Builder

Excellent point made that out 400 pull plans only 250 were good. Try it and learn but if you want some level of success, include someone that honestly knows what they are doing.

Felipe makes learning fun

This is one of my favorite podcasts. Felipe's personality and character bring a lot of fun to an important learning topic for the construction industry.

Wildcard -The Lean Tech Problem in Construction with Nathan Wood

Lmao!!! Yes the pain is real….get a great microphone. (And I love that Nathan focuses on the wildcard of ConTech: ‘people’)

Continuous Improvement With a Heart

Excellent podcast and a great resource. Felipe and the EBFC Show is nothing short of insightful on how to improve all coupled with a human touch.

Must Watch

This show is a must watch for anyone involved in the construction supply chain.

Fresh Air

The EBFC Show is exactly what modern day builders need in their lives. Felipe is friendly, realistic, and a great role model for anyone at any level in their organization. A testament is how he puts his guests at ease to talk about the realities faced on projects. Call me if you’re hiring direct reports Felipe. What you are doing is the future (Lean, Innovation, Operational Excellence, Continuous Improvement, TQM, or whatever else companies want to brand it) of construction and I want to be a part of it!

Love the podcast

Love the podcast

The Lean Construction "TLDR" Series

Felipe has created an awesome concept. Every episode brings you an opportunity to broaden your horizons in an extremely jovial and open manner. The EFBC Show is the best medicine for all Construction related pains...

Wonderfully Informative

We would love to hear the video of Darlene! We loved listening to this podcast, wonderfully informative!

IPD, Scrum, Technology, and Lean Leadership

I recommend the EBFC Show to everyone. I particularly liked the latest episode with Darlene and how she was real open about having to learn something new and how she changed and embraced it over the course of a project.

Excited about this topic/show

As a innovative technologist it’s great to see this conversation taking place in our industry.

Amazing Show

It was another amazing show, thank you so much for making shows like this.

The Voices of the Construction Industry Today

The EBFC Show is where you can go to hear from people just like you. We may not always be like minded, but one thing is for sure — we will better understand what respect for people looks like.

Outside the box thinking…

A great podcast that will draw you in and encourage different thoughts on how best to implement continuous improvement each time you listen. Great Job!!

Learn and Feel Good

Great podcast to learn a bit about Lean and laugh too.

What I Really Listen To…

This podcast is a great way to hear about Lean in Design and Construction. I’m construction adjacent like one of your guests mentioned working at a small operation that happens to have its own podcast. While it’s strongly suggested we support that podcast as taking one for the team, I’m actually spending my free time listening to the EBFC Show. 😉


The Kate and Millicent episode has it all — drama, humor, reflection, philosophy, and examples of lean practice. Bravo everyone involved!

Finding Your Tribe Episode 😂

My gosh that episode was so much fun to listen to! It was equal parts refreshing and eye opening for those of us who are made to feel like we don’t “speak the language” of a stereotypical construction type. I’ve definitely found my tribe in the EBFC Show.

Must Watch

Congratulations on the mention in Construction Magazine Felipe and the EBFC Show! The recognition is well deserved. Anyone looking to be motivated to build better look no further than the EBFC Show.


I just had the pleasure of watching Felipe in person this past week. I’ve experienced nothing like it ever before and can say the Felipe experience is unmatched. The room literally broke out in applause twice with this guy’s leadership. His podcast is on my watchlist too. Cheers!

Highly Recommend

Any time spent watching Felipe and his interviews is time well spent. There’s so much to learn from him.

Construction Change Makers on YouTube

Felipe hosted a Construction Change Makers panel on YouTube. It was an uplifting way to begin my Saturday. Go check it out!


Excellent listen with exceptional guests presented by the one who can only be described as a living legend of Agile and Scrum in Construction.

Love the change makers conversation!

What a great way to start the day! If you are in the construction industry, if you are lean inspired ... AND want a laugh/smile ... you MUST check this out!

This is not your father’s idea of Lean construction.

I’m going to say it. It’s not up for debate. Felipe is an authentic change leader for construction. He actually understands that Lean is not about reducing core staff or general costs. It’s respect for the team and allowing them to work together and collaborate to build something to be proud of. As a result, projects come in more profitable and early. It’s such a simple concept that many in the continuous improvement space fail to see or even acknowledge.

Golden Interview - Firefighting vs Lean Construction

This is a golden interview, two of the best minds in lean construction.

Business Matters - CEO Inspiration

Construction, the official magazine of the Construction Industry Federation (CIF) June 2021 Issue CEO Martin Searson Interview Q) Who's your role model? A) ...the work that Felipe Engineer-Manriquez and Jason Schroeder are doing in terms of Lean Construction and driving operational excellence. Q) Book or podcast recommendations A) ...the work of Felipe Engineer-Manriquez, from his EBFC Show, about making building easier and better.

Powerful Episode 24

In one word - powerful. Thank you Felipe for having a real conversation about such a hot button topic. You and Henry handled it in both a respectful and truthful/vulnerable manner.

Lean is the Path to Innovation

For those just dropping in to see what this podcast and Felipe are all about, let me tell you. Today, a lot of companies are all about the buzzword, innovation. Some hire people with sharp titles like Director of Innovation and task them with purchasing the latest software so the company can be featured in an article stating they are an industry leader. What they fail to understand is that innovation happens with the leadership of a seasoned Lean leader. For the skeptics out there, listen to the show. The evidence is in the collective experiences of Felipe and his guests.

Must have resources!

I always learn something new from Felipe’s podcasts. The guests offer perspective and real life examples of how agile, scrum, and lean are being adopted and implemented. Exactly what I was seeking, especially since it’s a niche community in the Design world. Highly recommend the EBFC Show!


This show is legit and worth watching. A great mix of construction strategies intersecting with coworker relationships.

Nailed It

The Sean Graystone episode nailed it - the elephant in room so to speak. Many in construction perpetuate this archaic system of management/leadership because that’s what always been done. There is another way! It’s increasingly being seen and it definitely isn’t championed enough by the bigger players out there, but the tide is turning. Thank you for talking about what makes management uncomfortable. That’s the first step.

Absolutely worth the listen

Felipe, I have to say that I feel like I know you. I’ve been nonstop listening to episodes ever since my construction foreman told me about you. You are a very bright light in this industry and the guests you include are equally interesting to watch! Please, don’t ever change the format. What sets you apart from the rest is you’re not just some corporate GC podcast trying hard to look good for prospective clients….boring. Your stories coupled with the true stories of your guests is what keeps me (and my whole project team) coming back for more. Cheers!


I listen because I get introduced to forward thinking folks with ideas that improve quality of life.
