Welcome to the Carolina’s Lean Community of Practice. Our Community of Practice was established in 2009 and continues to grow. Our members span North Carolina from the Research Triangle area to Charlotte. Currently our monthly meetings alternate between Charlotte and Raleigh Durham and we hold several all-day training sessions each year in Greensboro, NC. We typically take the month off in July so that members can enjoy their summer vacations! Our long term growth plan is to develop a large enough Practice to consistently hold session in Charlotte and Raleigh each month. Each December, our core group meets to develop a list of topics for presentation in the upcoming year. If there are topics that are of interest to you, please contact David Craft, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Katherine Copeland, email@example.com, and we will do our best to incorporate the topic into the upcoming schedule. If you are involved with a project or company that is implementing Lean design or construction and would like to make a presentation, please feel free to contact us. Thank you for your interest in our Community of Practice.

Reality Capture: Applications for Laser Scanning in Design and Construction
DPR Construction will detail out how they use laser scanning services. Learn the ways in which laser scanning can assist with enhancing the design phase of projects involving work on an existing structure for which as-built plans might be inaccurate or nonexistent, as well as how scanning enhances the construction process.
There will also be time for networking along with some snacks and drinks.

Why collaborate? Because it works, and because we can!
To foster true collaborative behavior – collaboration that can withstand the inevitable challenges presented by complex construction projects – requires the right people performing the right tasks within an environment that promotes trust and mutuality of expectation over shared project outcomes. Teamwork produces optimal results in nearly all fields of human endeavor. Military engagements, marketing campaigns, and sporting contests all depend on closely coordinated team effort. The failure to work as a team often results in failure or worse.
Investing in building a collaborative culture and a “people first” initiative has been shown to be a primary ingredient to engender success and to improve project results. This presentation will present some basic leadership strategies for building a healthy project team and a culture of collaboration on projects of all scopes and complexity.
