New York State (LeanNY)

LCI New York State Community of Practice

Welcome to the New York State (LeanNY) Community of Practice (CoP) website!

  • LeanNY’s mission is to support the continuous improvement of project delivery in New York State. Our regional focus includes the Hudson Valley, Central and Western New York . Our CoP serves public and private sector Owners involved with key segments of the New York economy: Health Care; Education; Research; and, Advanced Manufacturing.
  • LeanNY supports our CoP with targeted programs and learning events from Buffalo to Albany. Our “Lean Happy Hours” are dynamic sessions where facility managers, architects, owners, construction managers, developers, program managers, engineers and all project stakeholders exchange best practices and challenge the status quo.
  • The design, construction and development industry has reached a watershed moment. The confluence of demographic change, technology and a lingering frustration with traditional methods has made likely a disruptive transition in project delivery. LeanNY intends to play a guiding role as we move toward a new paradigm.

Join us as we build a LeanNY CoP open to everyone who cares about how the built environment is achieved. For more information on how to become involved, please contact Sam Spata at sam.spata@methodlean.com.

Design Community – your involvement in the beginning of the project planning process is crucial to saving the team from delivering projects late and with less value. This is also where Lean in design can help! Lean methodologies are helping design and construction companies in the U.S. and around the world become more efficient while increasing client satisfaction, cutting costs and eliminating re-work.

The 2018 Lean in Design Forum will address common struggles LCI members encounter such as:

  • Transforming a firm’s culture holistically
  • Implementing Last Planner® System in design effectively
  • Making sound decisions collaboratively
  • Onboarding team members consistently

The annual 2018 LCI/P2SL/AIA Lean in Design Forum is the event where designers come together to learn about and advance Lean methodologies. Industry-leading design practitioners will present on how Lean techniques free up time for creative decision-making and innovative problem-solving on current topics affecting the design community.

2018 Lean in Design Forum attendees will find immense value in:

  • Presentations by experienced Lean practitioners
  • Interactive learning roundtables
  • Lean in design phase educational sessions
  • Networking among Lean practitioners with passion for collaboration, creativity and efficient project delivery.

Join design colleagues at this year’s Lean in Design Forum in Chicago – the must-attend design industry event!
