DPS Group has been looking to grow efficiencies and has been investing heavily in process improvement methods Lean and Agile. Over 5 years ago DPS became more aware of the growing presence of Agile and Scrum and researched how it could be used within design, engineering and construction for our industry, We have incorporate Scrum / Agile into their continuous improvement methodologies.

However, as we look to scale beyond a single team we find as another that the construction sector is still siloed in its thinking and has inconsistent practice.


DPS aim is to deliver valuable on complex projects that we work on with our clients, Trade Partners and internal teams. This is a new world for construction, and we aim to predict the future by inventing the future “New” the world will change many of DPS Group’s ways of working

The construction process has had inefficiencies for a long time and recent data suggests the rise of complexity in projects is accelerating the problem. As a response, construction companies have been adopted lean to drive process efficiency. However, an efficient process is only the first step. Unlike manufacturing construction is more variable due to the number of outside variables.
