  • Focus on Process
  • Think Systemically
  • Create Constancy of Purpose
  • Create Value for the Customer


  • Defects: This is anything not done correctly the first time resulting in rework. This wastes time in having to make the repairs and materials needed to correct the work.
  • Production waste: tasks are completed ahead of schedule or in excess of requirements, resulting in downtime or waste of materials
  • Time waste: wasted time where workers are stuck waiting for materials to be delivered or for preceding work to be completed. This disrupts the workflow and results in workers waiting for work.
  • Talent waste: knowledge goes to waste because a particular person is overqualified
  • Transportation waste: construction materials or equipment is transported too early, or project information is shared unnecessarily, resulting in wasted effort
  • Inventory waste: construction materials that aren’t immediately needed end up clogging a site or pipeline
  • Movement waste: This is unnecessary movement that can be eliminated, such as having to make multiple trips across the jobsite to get more tools or materials.
  • Process waste: steps added to the project that aren’t adding value for the client
