Lean Construction

Lean Construction and Unused Employee Genius

Shortly after I was introduced to the concept of Lean Construction, I read the book Two Second Lean by Paul Akers and learned about what he called the 8 forms of waste. These were all straightforward concepts that I could relate to my industry, and I saw right away that there were ways I could improve my projects by reducing these types of waste.

There was one exception however: unused employee genius.
