Embracing Progress: Detroit Welcomes the 2023 LCI Congress
My name is Jeff Creighton, I am the Director – Lean and Team Development at Barton Malow as well as the Chair of the 2023 LCI Congress. As Chair of this year’s event, I am thrilled to extend a warm welcome to all attendees of the 2023 Lean Construction Institute Congress. I look forward to having you all here in Detroit, my home city, for this year’s event. To add to the excitement, LCI is celebrating 25 years of Congress. The theme of this year’s Congress is 25 Years of Learning: Supercharge your Lean Journey in the Motor City. In addition to the great learning opportunities, you’ll experience the Motor City’s rich heritage and revitalization.
Detroit’s renaissance is a story of resilience and reinvention. From the birthplace of the American automotive industry to its recent resurgence, the city embodies the spirit of progress. While you’re here I hope you enjoy the downtown area restaurants and make time to visit some great points of interest including, the Motown Museum, The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, Belle Isle Park, and the Ford House.
The 2023 LCI Congress offers a unique opportunity to connect with thought leaders, industry experts, and like-minded professionals from around the world. As the design and construction industry continues to evolve, it is essential to stay at the forefront of emerging trends and best practices. That is what makes the LCI Congress event so enriching – we bring together practitioners from across the world to discuss what is happening right now in our field.
Join us in Detroit and let us collectively embrace the spirit of innovation and progress. Together, we can discuss the betterment industry standards through Lean implementation and shape the future of design and construction. As Chair of the 2023 Congress, I am proud to be a part of this exciting journey, and I look forward to welcoming you to Detroit.
