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:

This is the event you’ve been waiting for – come and hear your peers discuss actual examples of the application of Lean to project design and construction. Topics include modular/prefab construction techniques, BIM & lean integration, construction work flow efficiency with Last Planner System, and creating organizational change through process improvements using Lean principles.
You will hear about the power of Lean on project level applications as well as broader scale efforts through the sharing of successes and lessons learned. If you have questions about how Lean can be applied to your work, we urge you to attend this event, engage with others during the networking, and leave with some ideas for making the lives of your co-workers, team members, and owners better.
The event is intended for all members of our industry including owners, builders, trade contractors, designers, engineers, students, and suppliers.
