Overview: The implementation of Lean tools and methods in a project-based environment – Lean Construction has the potential to significantly improve budget, schedule and quality outcomes on construction projects. Projects with a variety of contracting arrangements carry significant risk to the project stakeholders in terms of both cost and schedule. The potential for strained relationships developing between the owner, contractor and sub-trades exists which often results in conflicts. When this occurs, we see an increased level of waste on the project and adversely affected schedules and budgets.

To mitigate these issues, a disciplined and consistent effort to control workflow variation, reduce waste, increase productivity and drive continuous improvement is required. As part of an overall program to implement Lean strategies across a large organization, providing key members of the Project Execution teams with a workshop on the fundamentals of site level Lean tools is critical.


  • History and evolution of Lean Construction
  • How to apply Lean principles throughout the life of a project
  • Intro to the Last Planner System

Participants will leave with the ability to begin implementing Lean tools on your projects immediately
