The research focuses on in-depth analysis and investigation of the reason why Lean/Integrated Project Delivery system produces different success results when applied to construction projects.  It further examines the pattern of Lean Project Success Factors (PSFs) and their impact on construction productivity by developing a methodology for a novel rating system in construction.  This methodology was applied to a data base of real construction projects and used to create Lean Project Rating System (LPRS).  The research has accomplished two goals:  First, it has identified lean success indicators that influence projects and help in assisting construction stakeholders to induce Lean/IPD practice.  Second, it has suggested methods to help eliminate chronic construction problems and improve construction productivity in all project phases:  Conceptual, Design, and Construction, and ultimately improve final project success.
