There seems to be no end to the questions about Lean Construction

Dean Reed

Industry Day Lead - More info

What is Lean Construction really? How does it compare with Toyota? Is it a mindset and philosophy, an organizational culture to engage people to solve problems, a way to consistently deliver greater value, a set of methods and tools to reduce waste in construction, some or all of these, or something different that we don't really understand? Should we focus on methods like the Last Planner System® first, as we're starting out? How does BIM support Lean Project Delivery? And what about Integrated Project Delivery? Is Lean Construction just for AEC or does it also apply to EPC? Can Lean Construction help with Infrastructure projects?
