Chris Wearne, FICE, is a Chartered Civil Engineer who has been at the forefront of the effort to adapt LEAN techniques to infrastructure Projects. Prior to working in Lean he accumulated over 25 years Project Management experience in highways, heavy civil and waterways, in Construction, Design and Client roles.

He will conclude by describing the outputs of the workshop and outline some thoughts on how Choosing By Advantages techniques can tie in with other LEAN tools.
