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 ​Webinar ​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.
