  • Lean Construction Institute

    The Lean Construction Institute, (LCI) was founded in August 1997 and is now a non-profit corporation. We do research to develop knowledge regarding project based production management in the design, engineering, and construction of capital facilities. We aim to extend to the construction industry the Lean production revolution started in manufacturing. This approach maximizes value delivered to the customer while minimizing waste. A set of Introductory Readings about Lean Construction is now available on the Readings page. We understand that designing and building is different from manufacturing, but principles drawn from Lean Production Management can be applied through techniques tailored for application over the life of a project. Taken together these principles and techniques create Three Opportunities and form the basis for a Lean Project Delivery System.

  • Lean Enterprise Institute

    The Lean Enterprise Institute, Inc. founded by James P. Womack in 1997, is an education, publishing, research, and conference organization with an action plan. Compared with traditional "think" tanks, we are a "do" tank. We carefully develop hypotheses about lean thinking and experiment to see which approaches work best in the real world. We then write up and teach what we discover, providing new methods for organizational transformation. We strive to answer the simple question of every manager, "What can I do on Monday morning to make a difference in my organization?" And, by creating a strong Lean Community through our website and public events we try to give managers the courage to become lean change agents.
