Traditionally we have relied on anecdotal evidence to suggest how Lean project teams typically deliver better project outcomes. Empirical evidence now shows that projects with high Lean intensity are three times more likely to complete ahead of schedule and two times more likely to complete under budget. How and why Lean and IPD projects are excelling were explored through two separate Lean Construction Institute research efforts conducted by Dodge Data & Analytics and University of Minnesota.

  • We benchmarked 162 projects and inquired about 27 management methods
  • Research results now demonstrate statistically significant correlations between high Lean intensity and project success
  • This effort definitively breaks down some common myths about Lean project work, and makes a compelling case that Lean makes a positive difference in project performance

Join us to find out why owners, architects, engineers, and constructors are forging ahead with Lean.   Attendees will learn how to use this compelling information as a call to action, and a way to change the project mindset for the better. They will leave the event with an understanding of how to get started, and the best way to tell the story.
