ARE YOU WORKING LEAN? – One of ELECTRI’s industry partners, the Lean Construction Institute (LCI), is conducting a study to find ways to improve lean project outcomes through best practices. LCI is asking our ELECTRI Council members to complete a short survey for this initiative. The goal is to determine the degree to which the design and construction industry is aware of and utilizing the specific project practices in Lean Design and Construction that most frequently correlate to better project outcomes and greater professional satisfaction.
Survey contributors need to be familiar with project outcomes (budget compliance, schedule compliance, etc.) and contracting methods, as well as the processes in which the project team engaged. LCI is reaching out to trade and general contractors, owners, architects, and others with experience with all types of building projects, from commercial to industrial to infrastructure, to participate in the survey. ELECTRI participation will be vital to this project’s success. Participants will receive a copy of the study’s findings and a copy of the LCI Lean Deployment Guide.
