    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.

    Many smart entrepreneurs prefer to buy an existing business instead of beginning a new one. Buying a business that is already operational will bring many benefits, including an already established product or service, well-trained staff who know the business, and enough success to have kept the company afloat for a period of time. Not having any money to purchase the business will not necessarily keep you from buying it.

    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).

    Time management is a common problem faced by most of us. Often times, when you are swarmed with multiple tasks at once, it becomes extremely difficult to identify which ones you must complete first. Too often, people eat up what is supposed to be their free time to be able to accomplish all pending tasks in time.

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.
