We’ve adopted Lean Construction, why doesn’t it always result in the cost savings we expect?
In truth, Lean Construction is not a thing you implement and check the box – it’s a mindset created by a shared commitment to follow intentional processes and ideology. Cultivate and maintain your company’s mindset by keeping your employees, subs, and suppliers immersed in Lean Construction through the AGC’s educational tools.
