We welcome you to the home page of the Ohio Valley Community of Practice (CoP) of the Lean Construction Institute. The Ohio Valley CoP has been in operation for seven years with the goals of education and outreach on behalf of LCI.
Traditionally we have held 4 programs a year focusing on lean construction basics, applications in design, advanced training, and on-site observations. We occasionally bring in speakers from outside the region for advanced training, but have mostly been able to rely on local practitioners to present. To further advance CoP goals, last year we began holding a quarterly breakfast for owners to facilitate dialogue about the unique challenges they face. This year we started hosting morning coffees and happy hours in alternating months when not presenting a program.
We are always eager for new participants and thought leaders in Lean. We invite any interested to reach out to our leadership team or come to an event. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to become more involved with our CoP.
Benefit from practical implementation advice and engage with colleagues in the field who are using Lean and facing many of the same challenges.
This is a highly collaborative forum for superintendents, foremen, and tactical field managers to share in a small-scale learning environment (40-50 attendees) in an approach geared to providing in-depth learning and sharing. Build connections among experienced peers for continued knowledge sharing across regions during and after the event.
This event is specifically tailored for those with considerable workface experience in implementing Last Planner® and other Lean techniques on projects. We want attendees to be able to contribute from their experience, as well as gain from the insights of others. If you have gained such experience in Lean implementation and are looking to collaborate with others on their challenges and successes, this is the event for you.
