Lean Interest Groups currently forming

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.

WEBINAR: Engagement: Reconciling the People Side of Lean with the Process @ webinar
Apr 26 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Despite understanding the purpose and benefits of the principles and tools of Lean Design & Construction, project leadership still often struggles when it comes to achieving true team engagement and culture change. Lack of understanding between project management and trade last planners, lack of training/coaching, and inadequate preparation often lead to a failure to achieve the true engagement that leads to real project success. This webinar will focus on some of the common pitfalls of a Lean initiative, what a truly engaged team looks like, and suggestions to achieve that engagement on your projects.


Learning Objectives:
Describe attributes of a truly engaged Lean team
Identify the pitfalls that lead to a less-than-optimal lean implementation
Understand ways to improve team engagement
Understand the preparation required to conduct a meaningful weekly planning meeting
