2020 LCI Congress Recap

The 2020 LCI Congress is complete!

This year’s event was the first ever virtual Congress and while we wish it could have been in-person, the virtual platform delivered an effective and user-friendly experience. A global Lean network of over 1,100 attendees were engaged and discussed challenges and lessons learned since our last meeting in Fort Worth, TX.

Some notable topics included diversity, transforming behavior and culture, modular construction, and prefabrication. Speakers from every aspect of the design and construction community participated in this year’s LCI Congress.

During two panel discussions, participants were able to gain an owner’s perspective in addition to hearing from expert keynote speakers, Tom Wujec and Peter Skillman. There were two virtual Gemba tours and each provided invaluable perspectives on separate projects in Michigan. On Monday October 19th, folks had an opportunity to participate in two or more of the 24-learning day courses offered and earn continuing education credits. Attendees can earn continuing education credits for attending the core program as well as the Learning Day offerings.

All in all, the 2020 Congress planning team and LCI staff were able to deliver the “next best thing” to an in-person event, and we are confident the Congress provided valuable takeaways. The next LCI Congress is planned as an in-person event on October 18-22, 2021 in Phoenix, AZ.

LCI sincerely hopes you enjoyed this year’s Congress and will be saving the date for next year!

Here are some comments from our attendees:

  • This was my first Congress. I did not expect as much opportunity to engage and interact. Nor did I expect to be inspired by presenters like Tom Wujec and Peter Skillman.
  • I was expecting dry presentations. Keeping them short with plenty of breaks and allowing live chat during the presentations made it better.
  • The content and overall organization of the presentations was stellar.
