All WebEd times are in EST

Member Price: $79
Non Member Price: $99


If all stakeholders aren’t on board with Lean, can it work? How do you use Lean principles on construction projects where the GC is not an advocate of Lean? You can still improve your project outcomes even if all the stakeholders aren’t on board. In this webinar, learn how one Specialty Contractor has been effective using Lean by focusing his team on what they control.
