Our 
Story

Get to Know Us

Since our founding in 2004, the ReAlignment Group has been a consistent leader in transforming the design and construction industry. From our beginnings in driving team cultural development & alignment, to Lean Design & Construction practices and Integrated Project Delivery, we continue to seek out collaborative and transformative approaches to project delivery.  

 

Our coaches are veterans of the construction industry, and we have each gone through our Lean transformation through Ah-ha moments, a willingness to try new things and a lot of fortune along the way to be influenced, guided, and challenged by big thinkers, mentors, and peers along the way.  We bring a no-nonsense, practical hands-on approach to our coaching, teaching, and facilitation to projects and organizations in the U.S. and abroad.
