LCI Cascadia-Portland Community of Practice

Welcome to LCI’s Cascadia-Portland’s Community of Practice (CoP) in Portland, Oregon.  Our CoP was organized in 2007, offering 4 — 6 events per year to raise the awareness of Lean delivery and connect those interested in Lean with one another. We are always looking for people to become more active in our CoP so please contact John Strickland, Chair, john.strickland@ch2m.com, Tim Moore, tmoore@rosendin.com or Dan Heichelbech, dan.heichelbech@tcmcorp.com if you would like to become involved with the efforts of our Board of Advisors or to request specific topics of interest to help us create events that are of interest to you and will help you in your Lean journey going forward.
