ABSTRACT
Various studies in the construction industry have been conducted to develop the best practice that is only not capable of improving organization profit but also assists in 
producing a systematic work process which will encourage the optimal use of resources. Concurrently, the emergence of the lean construction concept is seen as a current approach that can be used to produce best practices because it was viewed as an effort to bring construction industry towards a more optimum productivity level with the efficient usage of resources as well as to produce the utmost value. The application of this concept will also introduce a work approach that practices the best implementation in construction procedure and process. Through this research, there is one main objective that was identified to be achieved, which is to identify the factors that were found to hinder the implementation of the lean construction concept within the Malaysian construction industry because until now the application of this concept within the industry is quite limited. The required data was collected and collated through questionnaire survey conducted on 150 professionals who are directly involved in the construction industry, specifically in the east coast region of peninsular Malaysia.
