"The key to driving increased productivity for our owners is our employee relationships. Our employee/partner relationships are what drive results for our customers."

-  Dr. William Paolillo
   Executive Vice President
   Welty Building Co.

More than 40% of Wednesday and Thursday's breakout sessions
relate to trade contractors!

Our annual Congress provides you with the Lean industry's latest and greatest trends in collaboration through one of our intensive two-day training courses or through simply striking up a conversation in the hallway in between sessions. This year's Congress is full to the brim with opportunities for you to find proven ideas to advance safety measures, eliminate waste and build a collaborative environment.

Congress is your chance to close the communication gaps between trade contractors, designers, general contractors and owners, which often appear in the traditional delivery method that is based on individual goals. Integrated Lean Project Delivery is the way to produce high-quality projects with less stress for everyone involved.

Don't miss these Congress panels!

  • Panel 6 will define Lean so that it resonates with all role contributors and can be widely implemented throughout all levels of your organization.
  • Panel 12 will provide ways to build trust with project teams and to implement continuous improvement.
  • Panel 13 will emphasize the importance of trust and collaboration in maximizing the value your team provides to the client.


"Lean is not just about being more efficient but also about effectiveness in delivering value."

-  Bobbie Lee Grant
   Director of Lean
