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.

A Lean Coffee
Friday, December 15, 2017
07:30 AM to 9:00 AM
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
Refreshments – Coffee and Pastry provided
