Welcome to the LCI New England Community of Practice (CoP) home page! Our CoP goal is to provide a venue for the local Lean community to learn, share, and network within the design and construction industry.  Please join us as we roll out an agenda filled with Lean coffees for stimulating conversation, training and education sessions for practical application, and case study events to support continuous learning.
