LCI Michigan Community of Practice

Welcome to the Michigan Community of Practice (CoP) website! The LCI Michigan Community of Practice is forming to create an environment where owners, designers, contractors, suppliers, academics and industry organizations can connect, share, learn, and explore Lean principles and processes. Our CoP is a group of Lean practitioners and enthusiasts at various levels of experience and a wide range of expertise with a common interest around improving our industry and the delivery of value to our Owners and community.

The best way to get involved is to come to our Lean Coffee events. A Lean Coffee is an open forum where participants can ask any type of question about Lean and there is open discussion between their peers on that question. There is no cost, all are welcome, and no previous lean experience is necessary. Please send an email with your complete contact information to LCIMichiganCoP@gmail.com to introduce yourself and get on the mailing list.
