Why Should You Attend?

The Annual Conference is the day we share our cutting-edge Lean Construction research with you, so you’ll leave with a lot of food for thought!

UC Berkeley’s Project Production Systems Laboratory (P2SL) has conducted a significant amount of research since we founded it in 2005. At this annual conference we will report out on our recent findings, ongoing work, and new initiatives. Our students and staff will present the ‘action research’ we are pursuing with our members from industry, and we would like to encourage you to become a P2SL member to learn from research together with us.

Every participant will receive the latest edition of our Lean Construction Glossary with 350+ terms.

Please join us in sharing provocative ideas and engaging in rich discussion.


  • Report on P2SL research findings and disseminate them to practitioners,
  • Solicit participation of industry in P2SL action research

Desired Outcomes

  • Have companies become P2SL members
