Brief Introduction to Lean Construction:

Creating a new common sense

Presenter:                                Greg Howell, Lean Construction Institute


Lean Construction creates three opportunities for improving project delivery - “Impeccable Coordination," "Project as Production System," and "Project as Collective Enterprise.” The seminar will introduce key concepts, principles and techniques to make sharp the difference between Lean Construction and current project delivery practices. The agenda, what happens when, is built around the Three Opportunities in a way to surprise and provoke participants, to shift common sense. On completion, participants will understand the essential actions necessary to take advantage of each opportunity and will be able to design their own plan for moving forward. Expect a full day starting at 8AM and closing at 5PM. Participants should be fully available for the day. We will start and end on time.
