"The 18th Congress planning team has put together a program that will provide each person opportunities to obtain valuable, useful training for their Lean journey. Training sessions with practical application are reinforced with opportunities to hear from fellow Lean practitioners on what has worked and the lessons learned as they apply Lean principles. If you are just beginning your Lean journey or have several years of experience, Congress will provide multiple opportunities to help you move forward."

LCI Congress Training Days are for everyone!

  • Whether you are at a fundamental level or an intermediate/advanced level in your Lean journey, there are courses for you.
  • Courses vary in duration so you can choose between 4-hour courses, 8-hour courses or even a two-day course!

But don't worry, we still find time to feed you lunch in between the intense learning!

Sign-up for Congress today because you don't want to miss out on the valuable roundtable Q&A, simulations and lecture courses incorporated into Monday and Tuesday's training days. During the Congress registration process, you have the power to choose from 20+ training courses that fall under six tracks: Focus on People, Lean Executive Course, Lean Improvement Tools, Lean Fundamentals, Lean in Design, and Path to Certification.

Because Lean is not Lean without continuous improvement and respect for people, participants in this year's training days will learn to lead by empowering others, to build trust in the Integrated Project Delivery System and to recognize and deflate conflict when it arises within the team. Other helpful aspects of Lean Culture emphasized in the training courses include: Choosing by Advantages, Value Stream Improvement, Last Planner®, Big Room, Target Value Design, The Shingo Model™ and so much more.

We look forward to seeing you Monday and Tuesday at our Congress Training Days as well as the rest of the week as we learn new ways to overcome challenges and to drive innovation as leaders in the design and construction industry.
