The DC Metro Community of Practice provides a meeting ground where those local to MD, DC and VA, can gather, learn, connect, and explore Lean practices. The CoP consists of owners, architects, designers, engineers, contractors and suppliers. Together the CoP shares successes, failures and explores new ideas in Lean both for organizations and the larger industry. Join us to help guide you on your journey in transforming how we design and build in the Nation’s Capital!
Join us for a virtual Lean Coffee to learn and support each other in our Lean endeavors! Topics will be presented for discussion and recorded onto a virtual desktop board. Using the link below, you can telecommute to this event. No need to fight the DC traffic!
Join us to take part in an open conversation 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.
Please join my meeting from your computer, tablet or smartphone.
You can also dial in using your phone.

What is a Lean Coffee?
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 and the facilitator will document the topic in a virtual sticky note. Voting will be done verbally 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.
Attendance is free of charge.
