Lean Learning Series


Join us for the first of 6 Lean Learning Series, “What is Lean?”. This topic introduces Lean Project Delivery as relevant to the design and construction industry, compares conventional delivery with Lean delivery outcomes and describes the goals and benefits of Lean. Participants will learn the key principles that are foundational to Lean such as the LCI 6 Tenets of Lean in detail.

The learning series is a structured discussion 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 are welcome! Come as you are and be ready to learn.

Attendance is free of charge.  Please pre-register.

Coffee and light breakfast will be provided

Please enter the garage from 10th Street. Visitor parking is to the right when you enter. The front desk will validate parking and direct you to the proper room.
