Lean Construction Institute's 18th Annual Congress Oct. 3-7 in Chicago

Join Us at LCI Congress

Register Now!      More Info

Register for the 18th Annual Congress event with our Early Bird Discount before it expires midnight EDT August 31!

This year Congress presenters will speak in Chicago from October 3-7, and we hope you take advantage of the educational and networking opportunities that come along with Congress week. Our Congress theme is Building People, Transforming Culture.

When you register for Congress, you have the power to choose which of the 64 breakout sessions, 20 training courses and five gemba walking tours will advance your Lean knowledge the most. To help make the vast selection easier, we've given each breakout presentation a track: Building People, Leading Change in Design and Construction, Lessons Learned, Safety and Scaling Lean in the Enterprise.

Another highlight will be Thursday morning's Owner's Panel at Congress, which is open to all Wednesday and Thursday core-program registrants:

  • Al Manshum – Advocate Health – The Preferred Partner Program Master IFOA Agreement
  • Jim Sexton – Proctor & Gamble – Innovation in Prefabrication and Modularization
  • Ed Fitzgerald – Genetech - Challenges in implementing Lean company-wide
  • Moderator – Victor Sanvido, Southland Industries, LCI Board Member

Register NOW before our hotel room block, breakout sessions and training courses are filled up.
This year's Congress is heading for another record-breaking year!

For additional information and to register for LCI Congress, visit or contact Joan Piccariello at

We hope to see you in Chicago!

PS: Because almost 70% of our breakout sessions' content is structured with the owner in mind, an LCI Owner Scholarship Program is available for those directly employed by an owner organization. Owners, we encourage you to apply for this scholarship by the September 14th deadline, and to tell your owner colleagues about this opportunity to both learn and network with the design and construction industry's leading professionals.

Please find the link to the LCI Congress Owner Scholarship application below:
