LCI Kansas City Community of Practice

The LCI Kansas City Community of Practice is working to rejuvenate our local practice and has hit the ground running in 2016 with monthly lean coffee’s (the 3rd Wednesday of every month) and larger quarterly events. So far in 2016 we have hosted an IPD presentation and Gemba walk. The purpose of the Kansas City Community of Practice is to educate and help grow lean construction knowledge here in our community. Please contact us if you would like to get more involved or learn more!

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!
