Advance your Lean Journey at Congress

Gain new ideas and perspectives that will enrich your work and drive your Lean practice forward. Playing a vital role in the ever-evolving design and construction industry for nearly 25 years, Congress is where your Lean community comes together for unparalleled knowledge-sharing across disciplines. Attendees come back year after year to reconnect while sharing experiences and successes—and return home with critical, actionable knowledge.

Join more than 1,000 of your colleagues and industry leaders for the Lean event of the year. You will have the opportunity to earn continuing education credits, engage in cutting-edge Lean methods, and network with your peers and Lean leaders. Registration details will be available soon.

“Continuous improvement is always on tap at LCI Congress. This year’s planning team is committed to building on that legacy of fostering unparalleled peer-led knowledge sharing for all industry stakeholders. Our 2022 Congress theme: “Lean Gumbo, The Right Ingredients for Project Success” is not a spoon-fed meal—it’s an invitation to engage with the people driving continuous improvement for themselves, their teams, their clients, and our industry. Gumbo is often served up at family celebrations in Louisiana and Congress is just that, a chance to celebrate the many flavors of Lean happening every day on job sites, in trailers, and in offices near and far. It’s an amazing opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals, find your inspiration to try something new, and reflect on your own next steps.”
—Tom Weathers, 2022 LCI Congress Chair & Director of Purchasing & Systems Innovation, Landis Construction Co., LLC
