“Our designs and our design processes are better when we focus on the things that bring value and remove waste. I come to Congress to hear the latest stories and lessons learned from my peers on Lean in Design and Implementation. We can all benefit from sharing our stories and continuously improving our industry.”
—Andrea Sponsel, Vice President and Process Improvement Strategies Leader, HKS
