Welcome to the LCI Southern New England Community of Practice (CoP)!
We are a community of owners, contractors, trade partners, architects, and designers with various levels of Lean experience who are passionate about applying lean principles and practices with a common goal of improving project outcomes and delivering value to our Owners. We repeatedly ask “why” to get to root causes and are not afraid to step outside of our comfort zones and try new and different approaches to increase stakeholder satisfaction and project delivery value. We also recognize that we are much stronger as collaborators than as separate thinkers, so we welcome your participation. We are seeking A/E/C/O industry professionals who want to join us “to find a better way”. In the spirit of continuous improvement, we are eager to learn from your experiences and share ours.
Our CoP regional focus spans from Connecticut to Western Massachusetts. If you would like to become involved in our CoP or to request specific topics of interest for future CoP events, please contact us at SouthernNECoP@gmail.com.
To create a rewarding and thriving culture and industry, that is a model to other industries, by continuously striving to:

Call it Kaizen, continuous improvement, or operational excellence, we all want to be better and better at what we do. That may be with our crews in the field, how we execute projects, our design teams, or the everyday processes we use to operate our organization. In this webinar you will learn:
What you learn can be put to use right away. While becoming a continuously improving organization takes time, with every step you, your teams, and your organization will benefit.
Design professionals want to know how they can improve client outcomes while maximizing design excellence. Participants in the Lean in the Design Phase webinar will gain insight to Lean approaches and tools relative to the design phase of project delivery. They will understand how Lean supports optimizing team communication, collaboration and results by connecting people, principles, and practices. Participants will be exposed to how Lean processes such as Target Value Delivery, set-based design, and the Last Planner System® in Design can be applied.
Join us for a 60-minute virtual CoP experience to engage deeply with independent Lean Coaches in a collaborative discussion.
Come with your most vexing Lean implementation or project problems and get expert advice. We will utilize breakouts to discuss topics in small groups, each led by a coach.
The Zoom link for attendance will be included with your registration confirmation email.
This is going to be a fun and interactive session and so we are capping attendance at 50! As well, joining from your mobile device may be frustrating. For that reason, we are only allowing attendees to join from your computer. We also ask that everyone #turnyourcameraon and come ready to actively participate! It will enrich the experience for all participants.
Construction teams looking to improve the value being produced by workers and to create safer working environments conduct Gemba Walks. In the Gemba Walks For Construction course, participants will gain insight to the what, why and how to successfully implement this method to support their projects. This course is important to developing a positive continuous improvement mindset on your projects.
1. Gain an understanding of the definitions of Gemba and Gemba Walks: “The What.”
2. Identify the purpose and roles related to conducting a Gemba Walk: “The Why.”
3. Discover the process of conducting a Gemba Walk including key guiding questions: “The How.”
4. Gain insight through real-project examples of Gemba Walks and the resulting improvements.
