Researches have shown advantages for an organization that can be obtained by implementing lean methodology, however, when implementing new philosophy like lean construction, there are always some challenges to overcome. For example lack of basic knowledge about the philosophy behind lean, lack of willingness to change, implementation processes in an organization lack of clear objectives with the implementation factors, etc. In this research, attempt was made to gain knowledge on how the organization should plan to implement lean principles in an efficient and sustainable way. Further research will be carried over in identifying the factors affecting the implementation of lean principles in construction projects.
