This book collates the main research developments around Lean Construction over the past 25 years with contributions from many seminal authors in the field. It takes stock of developments since the publication of Koskela’s (1992) Application of the new production philosophy to construction, which challenges current thinking and progress. It also crystallizes theoretical conceptualizations and practically situated learning whilst identifying future research challenges, agendas, and opportunities for global collaborative actions.
The contributors present the development of Lean Construction as a fundamental part of improving construction productivity, quality, and value delivery to clients and users of built infrastructure. In doing so, the book introduces the reader to the foundational principles and theories that have influenced the way we now understand Lean Construction and provide very useful insights to students, practitioners, and researchers on key junctures over the last 25 years. Highlighting the key contemporary developments and using global case study material, the chapters demonstrate good practice and help introduce new thinking to lay readers and experienced practitioners alike.
This book is essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers, and practitioners interested in Lean Construction and construction management, providing a general understanding of the area and current state-of-the-art knowledge and insight into areas for future research.
