Evolution or Revolution.  Shaking it up.

This year’s LCI-UK summit is opened by Rob Walley, Senior Partner here at Bourton Group LLP, and Board Director with the Lean Construction Institute UK.

The 2019 Lean Construction Summit

“Lean Construction: Evolution or Revolution? Shaking it up” aims to address the fundamental questions facing the Construction Industry, from the viewpoint and experience of our keynote speakers.

Lean thinking maximises customer value while minimising waste. Increasing value for the customer while employing fewer resources and creating less waste.

Rob was appointed as Director to the board of the Lean Construction Institute in 2018, and leads Bourton’s work in the construction sector.  Over the last 25 years, Rob has developed successful relationships with a wide range of construction and infrastructure businesses in both Public and Private sectors helping complex, regulated organisations improve their operational performance. Rob is recognised as an industry expert in the deployment of Lean within the Roads and Infrastructure sector.

He has a reputation for successfully managing complex Lean improvement programmes as well as multi-disciplinary business reorganisations.  Want to know more? You can get in touch with Rob here.
