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.

Leader — Tim VanAntwerp
Vice Leader — Jeff Creighton
Events Leader — Samir Emdanat
Membership — Tom Polyzois (248) 520-8128

A Lean Coffee


Join us for a Lean Coffee to learn and support each other in our Lean endeavors! Take part in an open conversation 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 propose discussion topics around any subject about which they want to learn – THERE ARE NO IRRELEVANT DISCUSSION TOPICS! Each proposer takes 15 to 30 seconds to pitch their topic, written on a sticky note, to the group. Once all topics have been pitched, voting begins to establish a priority for discussing the topics. Topics are then ordered from highest to lowest votes and examined accordingly. Participants will receive 8 minutes of time to discuss the topic. After 8 minutes there will be a ‘thumbs up/ thumbs down’ to decide whether or not the discussion should continue. Thumbs up equals 4 more minutes on the clock. This happens until it is agreed that the topic has been discussed to satisfaction. Takeaways are considered and then the topic with the next largest amount of votes is addressed. Come as you are and be ready to learn.

Attendance is free of charge.
