Introduction to Lean Project Delivery

What if you could add more value for your customers while meeting schedule and budget requirements? By recognizing the various types of waste in project delivery processes, you can start to increase productivity by implementing the Lean approaches taught in Introduction to Lean Project Delivery. With a small mindset shift, the silos set up by traditional delivery methods can be broken to allow architects, engineers, general contractors, trade partners and owners to closely collaborate and problem solve together.
