As a member of the design community, your involvement in the beginning of the project planning process is crucial. From saving the team from delivering projects late to ensuring the greatest value in these projects, your role is vital to your team’s success. Lean in design can help you continue to exceed expectations! Lean methodologies help design and construction companies in the U.S. and around the world become more efficient while increasing client satisfaction, cutting costs and eliminating re-work.

The 2018 Lean in Design Forum will address common struggles members of the design community encounter such as:

  • Transforming a firm's culture holistically
  • Implementing Last Planner System® in design effectively
  • Making sound decisions collaboratively
  • Onboarding team members consistently

The annual 2018 LCI Lean in Design Forum, in partnership with P2SL and AIA is a unique event where designers come together to learn about and advance Lean methodologies. Industry-leading design practitioners will present on how Lean techniques free up time for creative decision-making and innovative problem-solving on current topics affecting the design community.

2018 Lean in Design Forum attendees will find immense value in:

  • Presentations by experienced Lean practitioners
  • Interactive learning roundtables
  • Lean in design phase educational sessions
  • Networking among Lean practitioners with passion for collaboration, creativity and efficient project delivery.

Join your colleagues in the design community at this year’s Lean in Design Forum in Chicago — the must-attend design industry event of the year!

Registration fee includes the Wednesday evening reception May 30 plus full breakfast and lunch for the days you are registered for.
