“Why Lean?” Before we start clamouring for the tools, let’s understand how Lean represents a paradigm shift in our thinking about how to deliver the built environment—not just design or construction but the cradle to grave delivery of buildings and facilities and infrastructure that mark our progress and achievements in the world. In this webinar, Dick Bayer (first executive director of the Lean Construction Institute), explores the questions that prompted answers that involved lean construction and how its basis and implementation were designed to address the inadequacy of the way we deliver our facilities.
Lean Construction has shown steady growth since the founding of the Lean Construction Institute in 1998. Membership in LCI has almost doubled since 2014 and the marketplace has certainly supported its rise. People are asking for Last Planner™ and Target Value Design along with a desire to understand the collaborative concepts behind Target Value Delivery. By understanding the fundamental reasons why more and more companies are adopting Lean and knowing the root problems that Lean is addressing in the construction industry, you can improve the speed and effectiveness of your Lean application.
In this webinar, we will cover several topics including:
- What's behind the movement?
- The systemic problems that Lean Construction is trying to solve
- The current construction paradigm
- How to shift towards a Lean Project Delivery paradigm
- Why should you adopt Lean practices on your projects
