Why the Sword?

Construction is often characterized as war and that is why we have chosen the SWORD as our name to symbolize our core beliefs and educational mission to deliver value-added Lean management and training resources to Owners, Architects, Engineers and Contractors.


The SWORD is a metaphor for cutting waste, but as important, the SWORD is symbolic of an approach that is, not just educational but offers the practical skills needed to successfully apply the principles and tools of Lean and BIM in practical ways. In other words, we don’t value knowledge over skills. Like a martial art of archery or swordsmanship our consulting and courses are intended to transform our customers capabilities and effectiveness to deliver on Lean principles and practices.

With every Sword course or consulting engagement comes the understanding that the student must obtain the knowledge but also the skills to bring knowledge to the work place and create confidence that the Lean ideals will succeed. Students will face many obstacles and resistance to change, but our courses give them the skills to innovate and adapt under pressure.
