Adopting Lean is often described as a journey – we all start unaware and work toward mastery. Once your team learns about the power of Lean to increase value and decrease waste on projects, you’ll want to join LCI’s mission to transform the AEC industry.
Choose Your Learning Path
The Lean Construction Institute offers personalized, comprehensive and immersive education opportunities for any organization looking to implement Lean. Whether you are an owner, designer, constructor or trade partner, it’s easy to choose your learning path and open a world of possibilities for your business now and into the future.
If you’re an owner, you’re someone who invests in capital projects. Owners are responsible for hiring teams to design and construct a project. Owners are also institutions, such as hospitals, higher education, pharmaceutical companies, automotive companies, real estate developers, and the like.
A constructor (or general contractor) is someone who does all of the building work on a project. Anyone who works for a construction company falls under this umbrella. If you’re the owner of a construction company, you’re considered a constructor for our purposes.
Whether you’re an architect, an engineer, or a designer, you fall under the category of designer. Designers are the people responsible for designing projects for construction. Owners of design firms also fall under the designer umbrella for our purposes.
If you complete installation and supply materials for projects – whether that’s plumbing, HVAC, mechanical, or another service – then you’re a trade partner. Owners of these companies also fall under this category.
