Industry Day

2nd July 2019 – The Hogan Suite, Croke Park Stadium

The purpose of industry day is to provide an opportunity to share current best practice and challenges from both local and international projects. Specific keynote speakers and panelists have been identified based on their experience and knowledge of Lean Project Delivery both locally and Internationally.

The theme of Industry Day is Lean Leadership, Culture and Team Building. You will hear from local and international thought leaders and practitioners in lean through a mixture of focused Ted Talk style multi-media keynote presentations, panel discussions and Q&A. The “Godparents” of the IGLC community will share the origins of lean construction and where the latest thinking and developments are heading. In addition, leaders from all levels of project delivery – incl. CEOs, Project Managers, Site Managers/Superintendents, Trades and Lean Coaches – will share their roles in building successful project teams, creating lean cultures, and how they have overcome lean implementation challenges and resistance to new ways of working. Industry day will also include case studies from local and international projects.
