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, firstname.lastname@example.org, Tim Moore, email@example.com or Dan Heichelbech, firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Come and look under the hood at Integrated Facility Design. ZGF led the design of the expansion program at Vancouver clinic through a process of evaluating current and future state operational flows, table-top planning workshops, and simulation exercises using full scale mock ups. This approach allows for the deconstruction and reconstruction of the Vancouver Clinics vision for delivering health care to their clients, and how that delivery approach informs the design of the physical environment.
Buffet Style lunch provided

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.
