This doesn't only mean better quality and reliability in construction cost and time, but also improvements in the whole construction experience.

This course will therefore introduce you to the concept of Lean thinking and how it can deliver these improvements.

Using project simulations and real life examples you'll be introduced to new thinking and key principles of Lean construction.

The course contains a wide variety of material that will equip you with the basic skills and knowledge to implement Lean thinking within your projects and organisation.

Appropriate tools and techniques will be introduced and their uses illustrated.

  • the theory of production and Lean construction
  • the importance of value, the customer and a new mind set
  • an introduction to The Last Planner┬« System
  • Lean design and design management

By the end of this course you will be able to:
