The number of Trade Partners far exceeds the number of General Contractors in our Industry yet only 13% of LCI’s 2021 Congress attendees were Trade Partners. Lean Construction emphasizes the importance of value generation and flow on the jobsite. It is the craftspeople within specialty trades that help the GCs be successful in their lean implementation.
In our observations, once the project is complete the Lean Principles and Techniques are rarely carried on to their next non-GC led Lean project or permanently integrated into their internal business processes and approach to work.
1. Why do the number of General Contractor Lean practitioners outnumber the Specialty Trades Lean practitioners by such a large margin?
2. What barriers impact Trade Partner adoption, internalization and use of Lean?
Join the team from the New Orleans Community of Practice (NOLA Lean) and a group of Lean industry leaders in an open forum to discuss and identify practical ways to increase Lean accessibility, adoption and integration by Craftspeople and Trade Partners.
