Warren Buffet once said, “Investing is simple, but not easy.” I feel the same way about Lean construction. I have seen many builders look at the tools and behaviors of Lean building and say, “Oh I already do that, that’s common sense,” but then struggle to consistently put the tools and behaviors in place.
“Shelter in place” ordinances have been rolled out in towns and cities throughout the nation, but construction has been deemed “essential” in many places. I can’t think of a better word than this for the work we do. This means our industry can continue showing up each day and build resources for the people in our communities.
I try to apply “lean thinking” into all aspects of life, not just to work and certainly not just to construction projects (if you ever meet me in person, ask me to tell you how I manage my family’s weekly grocery list). When trying to inspire lean thinking in others, I encourage them to pick something that bugs them.
