AGC LEAN CONSTRUCTION EDUCATION PROGRAM
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 the contractors and designers who want to do their job well and move on to the next project. Lean Construction is based on the holistic pursuit of continuous improvements aimed at minimizing costs and maximizing value on a construction project
WHAT IS LEAN AND WHY DOES IT MATTER?
The implementation of Lean tools and methods in a project-based environment – Lean Construction - has the potential to significantly improve budget, schedule and quality outcomes in a construction project. A Lean worksite is one that shows a disciplined and consistent effort to control workflow variation, reduce waste, increase productivity and a continuous drive towards improvement.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
All construction professionals will learn the building blocks necessary to transform their projects and companies into lean operating systems. Completion of all 7 modules also allows the opportunity to challenge the AGC Certificate of Management – Lean Construction exam and earn the CM-Lean designation.
