Lean thinking and management have developed as alternatives to traditional ways of managing projects and operations. In the last 30 years, the construction industry has made big strides in adapting lean product development and manufacturing practices to construction. The Construction Industry Institute's Final Report 341 on Integrated Industrial Project Delivery provides fresh motivation for us to consider applying lean thinking and management holistically, for the purpose of achieving superior project outcomes.
In this webinar, Jayne Nichols, P.Eng., LBC, and Anand Nicodemus, P.Eng., from Fluor, will discuss the motivation for applying lean methods and integrated project delivery (IPD), define the paradigm shift, and describe the characteristics of lean and IPD with real examples. They’ll end on a note of optimism by providing evidence of its success from Fluor’s portfolio of projects and hope for a future full of exciting possibilities.
Brought to you by the Calgary Branch. Everyone is welcome to attend.
