2019 Planning Team Chair Joe Donarumo, Linbeck, on what he is looking forward to and how this year’s content will equip attendees to lead change:
 
"I’m invigorated when Congress nears each year as I value hearing other industry leaders’ Lean journeys – what wins and lessons learned did teams experience? The abundance of learning opportunity to be mined from the networking and presentations will yield culture change advancements and new standards/processes. I am excited that the 21st LCI Congress will deliver engaging content with relevant examples and takeaways to equip leaders to drive continuous improvement. Having grown up in Ft. Worth, I’m honored to showcase this great city during Congress. I look forward to attendees bringing home and delivering on this year’s theme of Overcoming our Industry Challenges with Lean Solutions."

 
"I am so excited to see the 2019 LCI Congress coming to Fort Worth. Attending and participating in LCI Congress has been an amazing opportunity for me to learn, grow and elevate my Lean knowledge. It has also become the place where I consistently build relationships with new Lean learners and experienced advocates. Every year, this one week is packed with learning new processes and tools, listening to the challenges our industry faces and participating in a Gemba Walk to see Lean in action. My biggest takeaway from Congress each year is that there is always more to do to be better tomorrow."
