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.

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!
