learn not to jump to solutions but to look at the data, the issues and the root causes and to see what this tells you!


Many New Zealand companies strive to understand

what it is that they can and should improve.

Your existing processes are often broken!

What am I going to learn?

  • Navigate through the process using the Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, Control (DMAIC) roadmap
  • Define and use the other Lean tools and methods including manufacturing and lean office thinking
  • How to use the overall Lean project process improvement techniques to improve job flow
  • How to eliminate waste using the TIM WOOD tool
  • How to use the road map for waste elimination – plan, do, check and act
  • Some Six Sigma analysis procedures that add robustness and depth to Lean

Lean Construction is a methodology for process improvement, essentially it is a technique for removing waste and improving process flow.  Lean Construction can be universally applied across many industries, services and projects.

Don’t go from the problem straight to a solution but to follow the logic of the road map, this will lead you to the best outcome.
