San Diego

LCI San Diego Community of Practice

If you are interested in learning more about Lean project delivery, join the more than 600 professionals that have participated and learned from events hosted by the San Diego Community of Practice since 2007.  The CoP offers a learning program every other month that covers a Lean-related topic, project, or subject matter including interactive simulations.  If you are new to Lean, the CoP provides a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and learn more about Lean practices on capital project planning, design, fabrication and construction.  If you are a seasoned Lean practitioner, consider sharing your knowledge with the greater San Diego community.  To learn more contact Sandra LeDrew at sledrew@mascariwarner.com or David Umstot @ david.umstot@umstotsolutions.com.  

We are excited to share that the CoP will be hosting its third industry day on Friday, August 5th, 2016.  This all-day event with nationally recognized Lean leaders is not to be missed.  Read on below to learn more.

Lean Construction Institute San Diego Community of Practice Industry Day Event
Friday, August 5th, 2016 0900-1600
Location: San Diego State University Parma Payne Goodall Alumni Center

Come join your colleagues in the San Diego Lean community with nationally recognized Lean Leaders at our third Industry Day event on Friday, August 5th.  Learn how design schedules were compressed on the first phase of the San Ysidro border crossing project, the busiest border crossing in the world!  Learn how BIM and the Last Planner® are being used together to produce incredible results for The Irvine Company.  What are they doing and how can you benefit?  Updates on the current state of LCI and cutting edge research on Lean application to project delivery at UC Berkeley will also be provided.  Dick Bayer will share keys to developing more collaborative cultures.  Come learn what “pistanthrophobia” is and how to avoid it.

Two well-assembled panels will discuss what’s working and what’s not working for specialty trade contractors on Lean projects.  Learn how builders can better leverage the expertise and value specialty contractors can bring to the table.  We will close with an engaging owner panel discussion that includes Bob Schulz from SDSU, Randy Leopold from UCSD, Clive Jordan of The Irvine Company and other invited guests.

Stick around afterwards to network and enjoy the sponsored Happy Hour with local microbrews and wine.

Registration is only $75 or take advantage of the early bird discount rate of $50 before July 8th.

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!
