Design processes and activities that integrate Lean thinking progress projects more predictably, generate more informative deliverables during preconstruction and bidding, enhance model development, and they reduce the over processing that is common with BIM project documentation. 

Authors Michael Czap, AIA and Greg Buchanan, AIA put forward their goal of delivering projects better through the synthesis of Lean concepts within the framework of current professional practice. Their approach to design management and project delivery looks for ways to facilitate early decision making that “sticks”, focuses on the needs of the end-user, and challenges the norms of all-too-common inefficient documentation practices. When open-mindedness to explore alternative methods is embraced, Lean serves as a system of ideas to benefit every aspect of design and delivery.
