Lean Construction - One Company's Journey to Success



by Ted J. Angelo

Lean has been around in the manufacturing sector for decades. Lean Construction, though, is in its infancy. Some construction businesses have tried it on a very limited basis, applying it to individual projects here and there. But the most effective way to achieve the best competitive edge is to apply Lean principles throughout your entire construction business. This can be an overwhelming prospect. Very few have even attempted it. They can get stuck on any of a number of questions: Who should be involved? Where and how do I get started? What all is involved to keep the process of change going? How do I deal with resistance to change? What are the costs? But perhaps the most important: where can I get the necessary information and direction I need to make this a successful venture? This book was written to answer all those questions. It s by one of the first construction executives to successfully incorporate Lean principles throughout his entire organization. The story chronicles the ongoing Lean journey of this company and its employees, from the first introduction to Lean through all the processes they went through to make this monumental change. In it you ll learn about the ups and downs along the way and how to handle them effectively. If you re anxious to learn about Lean, if you think it s a good fit for your business, if you want to know how to proceed and succeed this book is just what you need to start you on your own successful journey into the world of Lean Construction.
