A Lean Interest Group is a special designation for an area where individuals have expressed a desire to form a LCI Community of Practice (CoP). At the local level, a group of individuals forms to host initial events independent of LCI to gauge the interest in a specific area with the goal of applying to become a sanctioned CoP in the coming months. The leader for the group collaborates with LCI’s Manager of CoP Relations through periodic conference calls for guidance and best practices and to provide ongoing feedback on progress.
If you are located in an area where a Lean Interest Group has developed and are interested in learning more, please contact the group directly.
