LCI Community of Practice


The LCI Arizona Community of Practice was established to support the design and construction industry to increase awareness of Lean Construction within the Arizona community and provide a regional forum for conversations among practitioners. The Arizona CoP is growing fast and is composed of passionate design professionals, general contractors, trade partners, owners and consultants.  Please join us at one of our local events to start or continue your Lean Journey!

CoP Highlights/What's New?

Lean Happy Hour

Join us for a Lean Happy Hour to learn and support each other in our Lean endeavors! Take part in an open conversation in a safe, small and low-pressure environment about the topics that are relevant to our Lean community. We want to hear about the problems you are solving, the issues you want to solve, and lessons you’ve learned on your Lean Journey. No previous Lean experience is required.
