LCI Community of Practice

North Carolina
South Carolina

Welcome to the Carolina’s Lean Community of Practice.  Our Community of Practice was established in 2009 and continues to grow.  Our members span North Carolina from the Research Triangle area to Charlotte. Currently our monthly meetings alternate between Charlotte and Raleigh Durham and we hold several all-day training sessions each year in Greensboro, NC.

We typically take the month off in July so that members can enjoy their summer vacations!  Our long term growth plan is to develop a large enough Practice to consistently hold sessions in Charlotte and Raleigh each month.  

Our Impact

Get In Touch

If there are topics that are of interest to you, please contact David Craft, or Katherine Copeland, and we will do our best to incorporate the topic into the upcoming schedule.  If you are involved with a project or company that is implementing Lean design or construction and would like to make a presentation, please feel free to contact us.  Thank you for your interest in our Community of Practice.
