Cascadia-Seattle

LCI Cascadia-Seattle Community of Practice

Welcome to the LCI Cascadia-Seattle CoP! Our CoP has been formed to provide awareness of how Lean Design and Construction can increase the satisfaction of project delivery by aligning our stakeholder values with the goals of the project. We also have programming to share methods of continuous improvement. Some of our events include lean coffees, open forum conversations, training on various lean principles, social and network panel events, and more throughout the year. We are looking for feedback from the community on what training or events you’re interested in attending. If you have any ideas for presentation material or things that we can do for you as your CoP, please contact me at wsigman@uw.edu.

LCI Cascadia-Seattle CoP Core Group:

  • Will Sigman – Leader
  • Chris Heger – Vice Leader

Design Community – your involvement in the beginning of the project planning process is crucial to saving the team from delivering projects late and with less value. This is also where Lean in design can help! Lean methodologies are helping design and construction companies in the U.S. and around the world become more efficient while increasing client satisfaction, cutting costs and eliminating re-work.

The 2018 Lean in Design Forum will address common struggles LCI members encounter such as:

  • Transforming a firm’s culture holistically
  • Implementing Last Planner® System in design effectively
  • Making sound decisions collaboratively
  • Onboarding team members consistently

The annual 2018 LCI/P2SL/AIA Lean in Design Forum is the event where designers come together to learn about and advance Lean methodologies. Industry-leading design practitioners will present on how Lean techniques free up time for creative decision-making and innovative problem-solving on current topics affecting the design community.

2018 Lean in Design Forum attendees will find immense value in:

  • Presentations by experienced Lean practitioners
  • Interactive learning roundtables
  • Lean in design phase educational sessions
  • Networking among Lean practitioners with passion for collaboration, creativity and efficient project delivery.

Join design colleagues at this year’s Lean in Design Forum in Chicago – the must-attend design industry event!

For questions about Design Forum programming, please contact Joan Piccariello, Director of Program Development, at joanp@leanconstruction.org
