Team Assessment

The objective of the LCI Lean IPD Health and Maturity Assessment tool is to provide the project team with a snapshot of its progress in adopting Lean Integrated Project Delivery better known practices. The tool was developed with the knowledge that Lean/IPD maturity is indeed a progression and not a binary switch that is flipped on or off by inserting some tools. A project may be called “Lean” and yet only be at the early levels of Lean maturity for many of the Lean methods and approaches. An assessment, such as this one, is one of the few ways to quantify with some objectivity how “Lean” a project is on an element by element basis. The Framework for the elements was developed within the Lean Construction Institute Community of Practice; descriptions of the elements are embedded in the tool and are displayed as each element is being assessed.
