I enjoyed this discussion re. the Lean design process. As an interior designer who's firm is becoming more and more involved in the Lean & IPD process in our projects this hit home. I think as a delivery method for HC - especially the larger more complicated projects this makes sense, though is often challenging. The varied view points from the panel were well thought out.
