LCI Community of Practice

lean group meeting at a community of practice lean roadshow


The Minnesota 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.

Lean Coffee Events

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 Minnesota CoP please contact me, Ben Foreman.
