Making the Business Case for LEAN Project Delivery
From simply incorporating LEAN thinking, tools and methodology, to a full Integrated Project Delivery model, there can be no doubt that taking a LEAN approach to construction is achieving positive outcomes in capital projects. Overwhelming statistics show that projects are more likely to be delivered under budget and ahead of schedule while increasing quality and out-performing traditional project delivery approaches.
Procuring LEAN projects focuses on a ‘best value’ procurement approach using a number of criteria in addition to price. Project history has taught us that ‘low bid’ rarely results in low final price, and attempting to shift project risk to a 3rd party comes at a great cost to the owner with no guarantee of realizing projects that are on schedule, on budget and of the required quality.
Shift2Lean and NECI have collaborated to host an eSeminar that explores the business case for LEAN construction, examines the methodology in some detail, and discusses how to procure the best design and construction team for your next project. Learn how to stand out as an ‘owner of choice’ in today’s tight construction market so that you can attract the very best talent to deliver the results your stakeholders expect.
