Congress Delivers Value to the Design Community

Get the insider view of advanced industry best practices while networking with your peers, general contractors, trade partners, and clients. LCI Congress is where professionals from across the design and implementation spectrum come together to share ideas, challenges, and breakthroughs—and advance Lean practices. As a member of this community, you will leave New Orleans with the latest know-how, ideas, and project planning tools to conceive and implement transformative design.

  • See what your peers are doing and be inspired
  • Find out how to drive a Lean-oriented culture shift among your leaders and clients with a metrics-driven approach
  • Get tips, tools, and project management approaches to create and execute design that adds value
  • Discover how you can bridge the gap from design to building
  • Get up to speed on new and innovative design and implementation technologies
  • Get the owner perspective on design and implementation needs and challenges

“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
