Lean Construction allows companies to thrive in all economic conditions. By applying lean construction principles, executives can improve safety, and achieve greater customer satisfaction with higher productivity at reduced costs. The Lean Construction for Executives presentation is designed as a way for executives to share their lean journey with their colleagues to improve construction practices.
