Congress presentations and training will give you the insights and learning you need to take your Lean journey to the next level. Lean Construction is all about producing higher quality, under-budget projects with tools and techniques that minimize the impact of bumps along the way. With about 70 percent of our breakout sessions' content relating to you, this year's Congress in Chicago is a must-attend event.

"Congress is a very humbling forum where industry professionals share their 'Lean trade secrets' and experiences about projects, people and process. They do this selflessly in an effort to raise awareness and improve the overall industry performance level. Attending Congress over the years has mainly taught me the art of 'being' Lean versus just 'doing' Lean!"

-  Afshan Barshan
   Executive Vice President & Partner
   Skender Construction

Congress highlights for you:

  • "Lean Thinking" gives you the same mental efficiency exercised by our military: "situational awareness" that helps you be more aware and less accident-prone in the work zone.
  • "The Journey to Developing A3 Thinkers" aims to get to the heart of problem-solving through A3 thinking and building people skills.
  • Another panel will provide real-life methods that will help you succeed in scaling Lean to promote more effective value delivery

"Individuals make the difference. Even without a corporate mandate, the power to foster a Lean environment lies with the people within the organization."

-  Chris Vine
   Project Superintendent
   Hensel Phelps

Congress is the biggest and best event in Lean design and construction, an opportunity to engage in conversation with people who do what you do every day while learning from others who value what you value – people and project success.

"It is imperative that our industry adopts techniques to remove constraints, errors, miscommunication and waste while making work safer, more coordinated and more adaptable. That is when workers can say they enjoy what they do. That is when work finishes sooner at improved cost."

-  John Koga
   VP Performance & Innovation Resources
   The Boldt Company
