About

lean2The AGC Lean Construction Forum is focused on developing a community where anyone with an interest in lean construction can come together to engage in a dialogue on best practices, share information, and participate in a broad, coordinated effort to promote and define the use of lean concepts and processes within the construction industry.

The Forum is leading the development of educational resources and learning opportunities on the
use of Lean principles in the construction industry, primarily through webinars and the AGC Lean Construction Education Program (LCEP). The Lean Construction LCI_logo_BLACK_with_tagInstitute (LCI) has endorsed this curriculum and some of LCI’s extensive research, analysis and source materials have been included in this education program.

Membership in the Lean Construction Forum is open to anyone, both AGC members and non-members. To become a member of the Forum, AGC members should use their AGC member Username and Password to log-in to the Forum website. Non-AGC members are required to register and create a profile. By logging-in, you are joining the Forum as a member. There is no cost to join and members will receive Forum communications and have “members-only” access to the Lean Library.

What is Lean?

Lean Construction is a set of ideas, practiced by individuals in the construction industry, based in the holistic pursuit of continuous improvements aimed at minimizing costs and maximizing value to clients in all dimensions of the built and natural environment: planning, design, construction, activation, operations, maintenance, salvaging, and recycling.
