AGC LEAN CONSTRUCTION EDUCATION PROGRAM Lean Construction is driven to minimize costs and maximize value on each project completed, challenging all stakeholders to develop and apply better ways to manage the overall construction process. Everyone related to the construction process has incentive to get the project done faster and at a lower cost — from the project owners who want to see tangible results for their investment, to designers and contractors, who want to do their job well and move on to the next project. Throughout the construction process — planning, design, construction, activation, operations, maintenance, salvaging, and recycling — the holistic pursuit of continuous improvement drives more efficient, effective, and economic projects. On a corporate level, lean is most effective when embraced by all areas of the company. To do so, senior management must understand the need for and advantages of lean implementation. But lean is also an individual journey. All project team members must work together on a daily basis, incorporating lean principles into their most basic work to see the true benefits of lean.
