    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.

You have to understand where they are coming from and their individual strengths, weaknesses, fears, and motivations. During the recent global recession, much attention was devoted to the mistakes that sparked the financial and economic crisis, in hopes of not repeating them.
