Lean Construction Institute’s 18th Annual Congress Oct. 3-7 in Chicago

Early Bird Registration ends Friday, August 31st at midnight PDT


“If we are going to change this industry, as owners we need to declare and then behave in a manner that constantly reiterates that the project team is a collection of professional peers, not hierarchy.”

 – Kyle Majchrowski
        Director: Design and Construction
        Banner Health


This year’s Congress is a must-attend event, with nearly 70% of the presentations dedicated to owner perspectives and challenges. Plus, Thursday’s hour-long Owner’s Panel about why the participants are so dedicated to Lean and what it took to implement it in their firms and on projects.

In the design and construction world, you can’t do it all alone and that’s what Congress is for. Owners, this is the year’s best opportunity for you to immerse yourself in Lean thinking while making new connections with the field’s top leaders in the construction and design community. Don’t miss out on innovative ideas that can drive huge productivity gains on your projects while saving you time and money.

Here’s how Congress benefits you:

  • Owner’s Panel will discuss why they are so dedicated to Lean and what it took to implement it on projects.
  • “Raising Your Community” will cover how owners must foster a collection of peers rather than a hierarchy to succeed.
  • Panel 22 will focus on how using Lean tools such as Last Planner® on projects large and small projects is well worth your while.

“The need for professionals with skills in design and construction integration has been growing rapidly in the last two decades.”

     – Mark Shaurette
        Director: Center for Design Construction Integration
        Purdue University

For years, many owners and participants in the construction industry have been exasperated with the quality of projects that end up being more expensive, hazardous and time consuming than originally planned. Congress is meant to give the industry a step in the right direction to improving all aspects of project delivery through the Last Planner System® and Lean Project Delivery.

While the tenets and benefits of LPD are easily understood, its full promise cannot be attained without transformational change, and attending Congress is your sure-fire way to drive home significantly improved results.

The benefits of Lean Project Delivery are simple:

  • Predictability, lower costs, long-time partnerships and on-schedule completion to construction projects
  • The development of high-performing teams that handle problem-solving and are inspired to develop innovative ideas
  • Improvements in safety, productivity and the quality of construction
  • Waste elimination

LCI’s October Congress in “The Windy City” will be here before you know it, and now is your chance to snag the early bird registration and sign up for the sessions that benefit you the most at a reduced cost. Many companies are making LPD their standard and you don’t want to be left in the dust, so register now for the industry’s must-attend event. We hope to see you there!
