Congress Delivers Value to Owners

Wherever you are on your Lean journey, Congress is the place to network and connect with colleagues across disciplines to share ideas, challenges, and breakthroughs. This is your chance to gain new perspectives and elevate Lean design and construction practices with your partners in Lean. Engage through five tracks and 60 sessions with choices for every stage of Lean learning, including advanced breakout sessions and topics geared towards your unique goals as an owner.

  • Build and renew connections in your Lean community
  • Explore Lean tools that can impact the bottom line for your projects
  • Learn the value of the latest Lean initiatives
  • Get inspirated by stories of successes and challenges!

“The Lean Construction Institute’s annual Congress is an event I look forward to with anticipation each year. I always come away with new learning, invigorated to try new things, and with a renewed commitment to continuous improvement. Congress is one-part networking, one-part learning, and one-part therapy for those looking to make changes in their workplace.”

James Pease, Executive Director, UCSF Health Design and Construction
