Description

In a nutshell, lean construction is a team-led effort that, when successfully implemented and sustained, provides the means for workers to become more efficient and improve the quality of their work. Because a lean programme requires continuous problem solving and improvement, it can't be instigated by an outside party and then thrust upon an unknowing group of people. It must have the buy-in from bottom up as well as top down, as it is the workers who make it successful.
