Lean Construction is driven to minimize costs and maximize value on each project completed, challenging all stakeholders to develop and apply better ways to manage the overall construction process. 

AGC Edge Lean Construction Education Program is designed to educate construction professionals at all experience levels to develop the tools needed to build lean. The highly interactive virtual program provides instruction via Zoom and training to prepare construction industry professionals at all levels to learn the building blocks necessary to transform their projects and companies into a lean operating system. 

After participants complete all four courses in the program, they become eligible to sit for an exam to earn the Certificate of Management – Lean Construction (CM-Lean).

⦁    Variation and pull in production
⦁    Lean Workstructuring, supply chains, and assembly
⦁    Production management
⦁    Management by values
⦁    Problem-solving principles and tools
