Overview of the Research Group

The work of the Lean Project Management Research Group focuses on developing the new “project production” philosophy and methodologies for implementation across all project based sectors. These include all forms of construction and the production of other high value assets such as trains, satellites and ships, TV and film production, ICT systems and even aspects of medical treatment.

Within this overarching field of study are a number of sub-themes:

  • Strategic procurement for integrated production systems .
  • Design of new project production systems within specific contexts.
  • Deployment of human engagement systems that facilitate continual improvement at all levels of the production system and organisational enterprise .
  • understanding and learning new ways of working.

All our research has a particular focus on learning from action in partnership with industry to find answers to real world problems and issues. For more information about the Centre for Lean Projects contact us.
