An adviser on lean transformation and Last Planner in design and construction, Alan trained as an architect and then in management and organisation development.

After working in a variety of roles, he only returned to construction in 2001, building on his knowledge and understanding of collaboration, systems thinking, variation, quality and lean. Based in the UK, he has coached design and construction teams implementing Lean and Last Planner for clients around the world.

Alan is founder member of the LCI Education Committee in the US and Editor-at-Large of the Lean Construction Journal, he hosts a number of lean construction groups on LinkedIn, such as the Lean Construction Network. He studies lean transformations in construction and design organisations and is a co-developer of the Villego simulation.

What industry says:

"The summit showcases the latest thinking and approaches, keeps industry and government up to date with advances, and reinforces the good work underway across Australia. We need to celebrate our achievements and successes and keep an eye on the future as new opportunities and ideas evolve."
Andrew Curthoys
Director Innovation and Engagement (QLD Gov. Department of State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning)
"The Future Infrastructure Summit is very important for industry; the construction sector is lagging behind every other sector in digitisation. We need to catch up, and the Summit is the place where all the best thoughts occur because it's based on open principals."
Chris Dorian
CEO (BuildSort)
"It is great to have industry events that are developed by industry groups such as buildingSMART and LCANZ rather than generic conference organisers. This ensures targeted content and quality presentations. It is also great to get knowledge sharing happening between the Lean and Digital Engineering communities."
Eric Bugeja
Principal — Digital Engineering (EIC Activities — A CIMIC company)
"I think the Future Infrastructure Summit is brilliant, not only for organisations to internally step back and see what they’ve accomplished but more importantly, for the knowledge-sharing within the industry. To educate others on possibilities, and reduce the repeated metaphorical reinvention of the wheel."
Mel Binks
Senior Digital Project Manager (DBM Vircon)
