The research project focuses on the implementation of Lean Construction in two construction companies where each owner belongs to a different generation. Company A belongs to the Baby Boomer generation while Company B the owner belongs to generation "X" and I, the assistant project manager, belonging to generation "y". So this project studies the generational shock and the different visions that each generation has with reference to work ethics and how this affects the management of a company when applying new methodologies to improve its efficiency. Using the principles of Lean Construction and knowing the characteristics of each generation, I will develop an implementation guide for the construction and management processes involved in a construction company and that it be more efficient in terms of profits, process identification, definition of roles, reports and above all the constant communication between owner, employee and client.
