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 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 1,400 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.

“I’m thrilled to finally bring the LCI Congress, one of my favorite events, to Detroit! From October 24-27, 2023, Lean practitioners from all over will come together for four days packed with networking and learning. I can’t wait to not only reunite with friends but make new ones as well during this special event in the “D”!”
