Construction is becoming more competitive every day and many general contractors are turning to Lean Construction as a way to deliver quality projects on time and on budget - sometimes with varying degrees of success. If you've ever been part of one of these projects, perhaps you were a bit frustrated by the process, had a hard time seeing how it could help you, or weren't given much guidance. If Lean is new to you, now is the time to find out what it's all about.
• History of Lean - how it applies to construction
• Waste in Construction - learn to see hidden waste
• Workflow - why smooth is way more important than fast
• Last Planner System ® - what it is, how it helps projects (and subs) and how to use it
