The Construction Industry Institute (CII) is interested in the applicability of lean thinking to the construction process. CII has formed a research team to understand lean principles and to evaluate their applicability to their members' construction processes. As part of the work, the research team has developed a questionnaire to measure a firm's "conformance" to lean ideals. This paper presents the questionnaire, describes its formulation, and illustrates its use.
