The construction industry is broken. Seventy percent of projects are delivered late, over budget, or both, and the safety record is alarming. Traditional, siloed project delivery approaches have failed to make inroads into solving these challenges.
There is a better way. Lean Integrated Project Delivery is a comprehensive system of processes and culture enhancements that improves stakeholder satisfaction and increases project delivery value. Lean is a proven technique grounded in a commitment to collaboration and knowledge-sharing.
Lean thinking transformed manufacturing, and is increasingly doing the same for the built environment. Research shows that projects using multiple Lean practices are three times more likely to hit schedule and twice as likely to finish on or under budget.
Lean Construction Institute provides education, resources, and best practices to owners, architecture and engineering firms, and general and trade contractors who are working collaboratively to improve the design and construction industries and transform the built environment.
