LCI Colorado Community of Practice

1.0  Who

Our LCI Colorado (CO) Community of Practice (CoP) is a group of lean practitioners at various levels of practice, who are committed to:

  • Helping the AEC industry supply chain in Colorado make a new way of doing business, the “new common sense” way.
  • Enabling the AEC industry supply chain learn rapidly and continue to improve the value delivered to customers of capital projects, as well as the value to all who use the facility in the future.

2.0  Why

  • We believe that deep application of lean principles improves the definition of needs, design, construction, and operation of capital facilities.
  • We also believe that application of lean principles to run the day-to-day operation of any organization improves the ability of the organization and its employees to deliver better services to their customers.

3.0  How

  • Borrowing from the technique advocated in integrated forms of agreement, we have a broadly representative Core Group (CG) within our CoP to ensure our CoP activities and events will benefit the mission of LCI, appeal to a broader OAC audience, and add value for those who attend.
  • To apply lean principles effectively, we must have conversations that include all members of the OAC community.
  • We have discovered that holding meetings to share what we have learned with representatives of the Owner, Designer, Contractor and Trade supply chain in Colorado accelerates the benefits to the people and the projects in that region.
  • As lean practices continue to improve within our CoP, these too are shared to advance the benefits to companies and projects.
  • Ultimately, our CoP accelerates and expands improvements to facilities, projects and companies in it’s geographic area.

A Lean Coffee


Join us for a Lean Coffee to learn and support each other in our Lean endeavors! Take part in an open conversation in a safe, small and low-pressure environment about the topics that are relevant to our Lean community. We want to hear about the problems you are solving, the issues you want to solve, and lessons you’ve learned on your Lean Journey. No previous Lean experience is required.

Participants from cross functional roles as designers, constructors, owners, trades partners, and associations propose discussion topics around any subject about which they want to learn – THERE ARE NO IRRELEVANT DISCUSSION TOPICS! Each proposer takes 15 to 30 seconds to pitch their topic, written on a sticky note, to the group. Once all topics have been pitched, voting begins to establish a priority for discussing the topics. Topics are then ordered from highest to lowest votes and examined accordingly. Participants will receive 8 minutes of time to discuss the topic. After 8 minutes there will be a ‘thumbs up/ thumbs down’ to decide whether or not the discussion should continue. Thumbs up equals 4 more minutes on the clock. This happens until it is agreed that the topic has been discussed to satisfaction. Takeaways are considered and then the topic with the next largest amount of votes is addressed. Come as you are and be ready to learn.
