Mission of LCI:
- The mission of the Lean Construction Institute is to transform design and construction through new approaches to project design and delivery. Lean theory, principles and techniques, taken together, provide the foundation for a different, more collaborative, and more effective form of project management. Lean design and construction represents a transformational way to design and build capital facilities. The Lean approach generates significant improvements in schedule with dramatically reduced waste, particularly on complex, uncertain and quick projects.
- Five Major Focus Areas or Value Indicators Guiding our Efforts Include:Grow and sustain members
Create industry capacity
Develop collaboration & distribution channels

- The purpose of the Lean Construction Institute is to act as the catalyst to transform the industry to deliver projects using a lean operating system centered on a common language, fundamental principles and basic practices.
