What is Lean Construction?
Everyone related to the construction process has incentive to get the project done faster and at a lower cost – from the project owners who want to see tangible results for their investment to the contractors and designers who want to do their job well and move on to the next project. Lean Construction is based on the holistic pursuit of continuous improvements aimed at minimizing costs and maximizing value on a construction project: planning, design, construction, activation, operations, maintenance, salvaging, and recycling.

How lean is implemented within a construction firm can vary based on many factors, and the lean transformation is most effectively driven and planned by individuals within a firm. This series of courses are intended for an organization’s lean champions, who will design and implement a company’s lean transformation strategy at the corporate and project levels.
