Trevor Schick can’t stop the urge. “Whenever I walk by a construction site, I look in their Dumpster,” the former Hewlett-Packard executive in Silicon Valley admits. “Fifteen percent of the wood from a job site is thrown away! In a factory, if we’re not down to 2%, you’d get a better guy to run that factory. It’s the inefficiency of the [construction] industry that makes you really open your mind. I come home every night with 10 new things to go after. My head is spinning.”
