LCI Arizona Community of Practice


Introduction to Lean Project Delivery 

This is the time of year many of us are bringing in student interns and hiring recent CM school graduates and integrating them into our Lean cultures and practices. To help you in that, your Arizona Community of Practice is presenting Introduction to Lean Project Delivery. This will be a great opportunity to introduce interns, new hires, or anyone to the LCI, to get an overview of what Lean project delivery is, and support your efforts at building your Lean culture.

Overview: What if you could add more value for your customers while meeting schedule and budget requirements? By recognizing the various types of waste in project delivery processes, you can start to increase productivity by implementing the Lean approaches taught in Introduction to Lean Project Delivery. With a small mindset shift, the silos set up by traditional delivery methods can be broken to allow architects, engineers, general contractors, trade partners and owners to closely collaborate and problem solve together. This LCI education course, taught with real-life design and construction examples and a hands-on simulation, will be an important step on your journey to achieve Lean thinking.


  • Definition of Lean and the principles associated with a Lean operating system.
  • Identify the principles and tools relevant to Lean design and Construction processes.
  • Recognize various types of waste in design and construction and apply tools to reduce, minimize and/or eliminate waste.
  • Increase collaboration and communication on projects through application of structured planning systems and processes
