LeanProject (LeanProject) provides management consulting services to the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) industries along with other project-based firms.
The company focuses on helping firms move from traditional project delivery approaches to current best practices based on lean thinking, collaborative processes and language-action based practices for coordinating action. LeanProject works in two principal ways. We help clients with “consequential” projects and we help firms learn to deliver all their projects on a lean basis.
In the first case, contractors, designers and owners approach us for help with what is for them a project that has high stakes. We design an engagement that is specific to the project circumstances and client goals. In the second case, any one of the three major project participants — owners, designers and contractors — engage us to embark on an organization-wide transformation of their project delivery approach. These engagements usually last for over 12 months.
When LeanProject started out, we spent most of our time helping companies implement the Last Planner® System in construction settings. In 2004, we began working with design firms to adopt lean thinking in their practices. In the recent years we’ve seen a large swing to supporting lean Integrated Project Delivery™.
