Upper Midwest

LCI Upper Midwest Community of Practice

The Upper Midwest CoP brings together the most forward thinking and respected design, construction, and supply chain and professionals in our in region.

Through effective lean leadership we are creating a “buzz” within our community, an excitement, an infectious desire far beyond our core group for a sustainable local lean culture.  We are creating a rising tide that will lift all the boats in our local construction community.

The best way to get involved is to come to our monthly Lean Coffee events that are on the second Thursday of each month!  There is no cost, all are welcome, and no previous lean experience is necessary. For more information about the Upper Midwest CoP please contact me, Dave Rahe, at dave.rahe@weitz.com.

Our dedicated core group members include:

  • Dave Rahe (Chair), The Weitz Company
  • Perry Thompson (Vice Chair), Parsons Electric
  • Kyle Woody, Kraus Anderson
  • Eli Mastin, Mortenson
  • Charlie McGough, McGough
  • Kelley Buckentine, Opus

We look forward to seeing your soon! Should you have any questions about our group, please feel free to reach out to Dave Rahe at dave.rahe@weitz.com or another core group member listed above.
