Abstract

This paper presents a research methodology for testing the hypothesis, ―The implementation of Lean Construction improves project performance‖, and for supporting a recommendation that South Korea embrace Lean Construction. To meet general quantitative research requirements, the methodology will include hypothesis testing; measurement of variables in the hypothesis, a large N sampling and a small N case selection strategy, and interpretation of the findings. The results of executing the methodology will be published in future papers.
