About Greg Howell

Greg Howell is one of the founding fathers of Lean Construction. Greg Howell and Glenn Ballard invented the Last Planner System in the early 1990s and their work on productivity in the 1980s lead to the development of the Lean Construction field. During his life, Greg published more than 100 research papers on how to improve the construction industry. He was the first to develop the concept of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) in the early 2000s. He introduced the concept of using games and simulations to teach Lean Construction concepts and was the creator of the Parade of Trades Game. He is known to be very generous in sharing his knowledge and expertise. He was a great storyteller and connected people together. Greg and Glenn founded the Lean Construction Institute (LCI) in 1997.

Greg's generousity and legacy has built the Lean Construction community to where it is today. His scientific research and project-based implementations lead to many of the Lean Construction methods and practices that we currently use today. It is our honor to be able to livestream his memorial services to everyone around the world for FREE. We at the Lean Construction Blog hope that you can join us in honoring one of the founding fathers of Lean Construction.
