Pillar 6: Lean and Agile Management

IEPC industry professionals use a results-based approach known as lean management. Rather than simply meeting calendar deadlines, lean management aims for constant improvements in overall efficiency.

The team focuses on creating value and eliminating waste, rather than just cutting costs. In a building retrofit project, this might mean finding the most reliable, cost-effective technical solution, one that offers the highest return on the investment while generating significant energy savings, operational efficiency, comfort and other benefits.

The approach is also agile. Industry professionals tackle problems as they arise in the course of the project and make changes mid-course, if necessary, to deliver a project on time and within budget.
