Mike Fisher and Brian Somers are the hosts of the It Happened on the Job Podcast. Their collection of conversations with contractors come from all sides of the construction industry. In this episode, we take turns being podcast guests to uncover how we got started in the industry and podcasting, daily challenges, and some interesting stories from jobsites that we all love to hear and share around the water cooler. We went deeper into how to adopt Lean Construction companywide, Lean thinking, and how to generate the maximum possible amount of customer value to make work Easier, Better, Faster, and as a result, Cheaper.
