Title: ISO 18404 as a Lean Construction Transformation Model
By: Steve Ward from WSP Continuous Improvement Services & Simon Caklais from Gilbert and Goode
When: 3.00pm, 27th March 2019.
The philosophy of Lean Construction, and its Tools & Techniques are now well known. However adoption by the industry has been slow and on an ad hoc basis. The sector still fails to keep up with other sectors rates of improvement. In 2018 the first construction company in the world achieved the international lean standard ISO18404.
This webinar presents this case study and explains why ISO18404 provides a useful model for any business that is serious about lean transformation as opposed to ad hoc deployment of tools.

Over 500 lean construction professionals attended the inaugural Lean Construction Ireland national conference on the 20th of November in Croke Park Dublin.
