    Lean Construction is a way to do more and more with less and less; less effort, less equipment, less time and less space whilst providing customers with exactly what they want. A Lean system, process, and organisation is one that is waste free. Lean is not about size or number of people employed. A reduction in employees may cut costs, and eliminate the waste of those employees, but does not decrease the proportion of waste to value adding within the organisation or process.

    In these incredibly tough budget times, you would think government agencies would be working extra hard to find ways of doing things more efficiently. Unfortunately, leaders across the world are grabbing the same old playbook: recruitment freezes, travel restrictions, delaying maintenance, and so on.

    It’s time once again to make much of a simple concept; that two groups with different names, languages and cultures might put aside their old habits, pettiness, and grudges, recognize the overwhelming alignment of their most critical self-interests, and join their complementary strengths to achieve unprecedented peace, harmony, and productivity. That’s the concept behind total productive maintenance (TPM).

    Lean is designed to reduce the seven "deadly forms of waste": defects, overproduction, over processing, wasted motion, inventory (work in process), transport/handling, and waiting. Addressing any, or all, of these can help operations run more efficiently and therefore be more competitive. But, in my experience as a former union member, internal change agent, and currently as an organizational change consultant, Lean implementation in union environments can be tricky.

    In fact, stress is more dangerous than we thought. You've probably heard that it can raise your blood pressure, increasing the likelihood of a stroke in the distant future, but recently a health insurance brochure claimed that 90 percent of visits to a primary care physician were stress-related disorders.
