When you are running muliple projects with competing resources and one project stallls and another project could start some work ahead of schedule to gain time. This will position the stalled project to recover lost time when it resumes by allowing the competing resources to focus on getting the project back on track

Be Lean/Agile to gain time jumping around your project timelines to knock out tasks that can be done ahead of time.

Corrections are always there and it is a waste.

Any hand-off is additional waste that adds up. Consider that deployment request, waiting for testing, waiting to get an email response, waiting for approval from compliance, etc. These are the not-so-obvious delays which are obvious once mentioned. One-week of effort turns into a three-week task.

you could consider the traditional waste categories as a starting point- TIMWOOD
T- Transportation
I- Inventory
M- Motion
W- Waiting
O- Overproduction
O- Overprocessing
D- Defects

these are applicable in both mfg and service sectors

Sromon has provided the standard seven wastes of lean to which I'll add Intellect (i.e. waste of intellectual capability).

Pretty much all of these eight forms of Muda are applicable in a project context related to the processes for producing the product, service or result as well as the processes for project management itself.

Time is the on thing you can get back. Most of the suggestions here would get you to waste time.

If you are talking about the concept taken from Lean, then everything that is a cost for your stakeholders and do not generate value is wasted. In this defintion cost is not related to money only. Then, you have to define both terms relating your stakeholders.
