The annual LCI Congress kicks off October 7, with truly outstanding content focused on the process, people, and performance aspects of Lean delivery. Record numbers of owners and others will offer perspectives from across the supply chain, project phases, and experience levels, bringing the most content of any Congress to date. The program will feature extensive breakout sessions, allowing participants to customize their Congress experience for optimum value. There will be expanded training opportunities offered October 7. The San Francisco Bay area location marks a return to where Lean Construction began, and in keeping with this heritage LCI will offer a number of Lean project site tours on Friday morning, October 10.
Featured speakers this year include Billy Beane, VP and General Manager of the Oakland A’s, whose “Moneyball” philosophy has been adopted by organizations of all sizes, across all industries, as a way to more effectively manage their assets, talent, and resources. Art Byrne, author of The Lean Turnaround is most recognizable for his lean implementation as CEO of Wiremold. And James Hereford, COO, Stanford Hospitals and Clinics, previously implemented lean management systems at Group Health in the Northwest, Palo Alto Medical Foundation in Northern California, and now is doing the same at Stanford.
