Finally! We’ve organized a great panel of speakers for the Lean event that everyone has been asking for – What is Lean: An Owner’s Perspective. Come hear from three highly respected panelists about how they’ve used Lean methodologies on numerous construction projects in their careers and the impressive results they’ve had. Lean project delivery isn’t just a great idea, it’s a proven methodology. And after hearing from our panelists, we think you’ll want to start utilizing Lean practices on your next project, too.
