For this presentation we go back to basics. The basic principles of Lean will be explored and you will be given insight into what leading owners, designers, contractors and sub-contractors have gained from implementing lean practices on their projects and in their businesses.
The first speaker, Paul Tilley will provide an overview of Lean principles and how they can be applied within a construction context.
The second speaker, Marton Marosszeky will share the lessons he has learned from the number of case studies he has researched for his forthcoming book. He will present on the benefits of lean for clients, designers, contractors and subcontractors.
