Lean Construction is becoming increasingly popular due to its direct benefits on safety, schedule, cost, and quality; Lean capability is now becoming an expectation as opposed to a ‘nice to have’.
The future of construction is Lean. The more management and employees understand and practice these concepts, the greater the opportunity for the sustainability and development of the company. Lean thinking and tools can solve some of the re-occurring problems on projects and offers a systematic approach to project management.
Implementing Lean needs innovation from bottom up (from the people who are doing the work everyday) and leadership & support from top management, who empower and encourage the use of Lean.
