HMC Architects’ Principal and Senior Medical Planner, Michael Williams will lead two deep-dive learning sessions at the 2019 Lean Construction Institute (LCI) Lean in Design Forum in Chicago, Illinois on May 29.

Lean in Design Phase (8 a.m. to Noon)–will introduce Lean Project Delivery as an “operating system” based in principles and use of appropriate tools. Participants will learn that Lean is about understanding value and eliminating waste. The overview is focused on the practical implementation of Lean approaches, including examples of how teams actually implement Lean.

Lean in the Design Practice (1 to 5 p.m.)will focus on how and where to start, how to advance Lean within a design firm, and the importance of leadership support of Lean efforts as a culture shift, not only using a few new tools.

The annual 2019 LCI Lean in Design Forum 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.
