Building Lean, Building BIM is the essential guide for any construction company that wants to implement Lean Construction and Building Information Modelling (BIM) to gain a strategic edge over their competition. The first of its kind, the book outlines the principles of Lean, the functionality of BIM, and the interactions between the two, illustrating them through the story of how Tidhar Construction has implemented Lean Construction and BIM in a concerted effort over four years. Tidhar is a small-to-medium-sized construction company that pioneered a way of working that gave it a profit margin unheard of in its market. The company's story serves as a case study for explanation of the various facets of Lean Construction and BIM. Each chapter defines a principle of Lean and/or BIM, describes the achievements and failures in Tidhar's implementation based on the experiences of the key people involved, and reviews the relevant background and theory. The implementation at Tidhar has not been a pure success, but by examining their motives alongside their achievements and failures, readers will learn about what pitfalls and pinnacles to expect. A number of chapters also compare the experience of Tidhar with those of other companies who are leaders in their fields, such as Skanska and DPR. This book is highly relevant and useful to a wide range of readers from the construction industry, especially those who are frustrated with the inefficiencies in their companies and construction projects. It is also essential reading for Lean and BIM enthusiasts, researchers and students from a variety of industries and backgrounds.

Lean Startup bukanlah metode yang menjadikan sistem Anda lebih hemat biaya, melainkan lebih efisien sekaligus (tetap) bermanfaat. Setiap tahunnya, startup-startup baru bermunculan. Produk yang bagus, promosi besar-besaran disertai berbagai ulasan di media massa, serta janji-janji manis bahwa konsumen akan mendapatkan manfaat besar jika menjadi penggunanya. Namun, tak lama berselang, beberapa di antara startup yang digadang-gadang itu tak lagi terdengar kabarnya. Seperti yang selalu kita dengar, seorang entrepreneur pasti sukses selama memiliki tekad kuat, panjang akal, waktu yang tepat, dan-terutama-produk yang hebat. Kenyataannya, awal yang menjanjikan tak jarang berujung pada kegagalan. Sebagian besar produk baru tidak sukses di pasaran, bahkan pahitnya, tak digunakan oleh siapa pun. Pertanyaan besar pun muncul, strategi manakah yang tidak tepat? Lewat riset ilmiah serta pengalamannya dalam mendirikan dan membesarkan berbagai startup selama bertahun-tahun, Eric Ries mencetuskan metode baru, Lean Startup. Sebuah sistem luar biasa yang membuat para enterpreneur segera mendapatkan jawaban atas pertanyaan: bagaimana kita bisa lebih cepat mengetahui apa saja yang berfungsi dan mana yang harus segera disingkirkan? ------------------------------------------------------------------- The Lean Startup merupakan panduan rinci yang berfungsi untuk menghindarkan sebuah sistem dari hambatan-hambatan yang mampu memicu kegagalan." -Noam Wasserman, profesor Harvard Business School "Eric memaparkan proses terukur dalam menciptakan produk dan bisnis baru yang tidak bergantung pada keberuntungan. Perusahaan saya sudah membuktikannya!" -Scott Cook, founder dan Ketua Komite Eksekutif Intuit [Mizan, Bentang Pustaka, Bisnis, Ekonomi, Terjemahan, IT, Startup, Internet, Indonesia]
