Coronavirus Travel Information

Collective skills and commitment play a huge role in the success of the design community. From ensuring on-time delivery to guaranteeing high-quality project value, collaboration is vital to a team’s success. High-performing design and construction teams who empower the intersection of equity, diversity and inclusion with Lean methodologies excel at efficiency while increasing client satisfaction, and eliminating re-work.

The 2020 Lean in Design Forum, held this year in Dallas, will cover solutions and efficiencies made possible by strong equity, diversity and inclusion across the design community. Session and discussion topics will include:

  • How Lean thinking intersects with ED&I best practices.
  • The importance of collaboration and the strength of high performing teams.
  • How to use Lean practices to promote equity, inclusion and the advancement of women.
  • The connection of design thinking and diversity.

The annual 2020 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.

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 — the must-attend design industry event of the year!

Your registration fee includes the Wednesday evening reception on May 27, plus full breakfast and lunch on the days you are registered for.

“I always walk away from the Lean in Design Forum feeling inspired and this year will be no different. I’m looking forward to diving deeper into the role equity, diversity and inclusion plays in supporting high-performing teams and ensuring effective and efficient project outcomes.”

Bernita Beikmann, Chief Process Officer, HKS
