LCI Community of Practice

Austin, TX

Welcome to the LCI Austin Community of Practice. Located in the heart of Texas, our mission is to connect A/E firms, contractors, trade partners, owners, and other stakeholders to transform the design and construction industry through Lean practices.  We are committed to pushing the envelope of what is possible through innovation, continuous learning, and collaboration. Our ultimate goal is to set the benchmark for project value delivery in our industry.

ALERT!  We are rebuilding our CoP core group! If you are an experienced Lean professional and would like to be part of the force that leads the direction and events for the Austin community please contact Denise Erminger, CoP Relations with the subject “Austin core group” for more information.

What We Do

As part of the Lean Construction Institute, we serve as a local extension reaching out to design and construction stakeholders by:

  • Advancing Lean knowledge and understanding
  • Providing academic, applied and experiential learning opportunities that engage members at any point in their development of Lean mastery
  • Building a Lean network to better connect people and ideas

Get Involved

Whether you are new to Lean or you are a seasoned Lean practitioner, our Community of Practice aims at providing you with a dynamic and energizing forum where you will meet like-minded individuals and/or organizations that want to take their value proposition and value delivery to the next level.
