"Over the last few years I have sent many of my team members to attend the LCI Congress Training Days. The Training Days have been extremely valuable and instrumental in the growth and development of my team in becoming Lean Construction practitioners. Many of them have experienced 'break-through moments in their understanding…most often once they reach that point, they are unstoppable and become 'Lean for life!'"

-  Tim Polaskey
   Construction Manager
   BP Whiting Projects Team

How Congress benefits you:

  • Experienced instructors will share their own paths to success and the lessons learned from their failures along the way
  • Breakout sessions offer distributed leadership skills that veer away from traditional hierarchal leadership, thus eliminating stress and promoting respect for people
  • Over 70% of our Congress offerings are geared toward Owner initiatives
  • Attend "An Owner's Perspective: How ILPD Outperformed Design Build" and have an entire session dedicated to you

"The Lean Construction Institute is unique in creating an open forum for the sharing of ideas and lessons learned. In this environment, people are willing to discuss failures and what they learned from them. When coupled with educational opportunities and multiple venues to network with peers, the collaborative mentality is extremely valuable to advancing the design and construction industry."

-  James Pease
   Senior Project Manager

What Integrated Lean Project Delivery provides:

  • A high-performing team of professionals will handle problem solving through a collaborative environment that inspires innovative Lean thinking
  • Improvements in safety, productivity and the quality of construction
  • Waste elimination

"Those construction companies that have successfully applied Lean methods have reduced construction time by up to 30% and reduced costs by up to 15%."
