If you are interested in learning more about Lean project delivery, join the more than 600 professionals that have participated and learned from events hosted by the San Diego Community of Practice since 2007. The CoP offers a learning program every other month that covers a Lean-related topic, project, or subject matter including interactive simulations. 

Lean Roadshow: Irvine

At The Lean Roadshow, get highly applicable instruction targeted to your specific experience level across two days of immersive education. This program will create the environment that will spark enthusiasm and curiosity while sharing tools to start and/or support you on your Lean journey. The Lean Roadshow will promote education, networking and first-hand experience from industry experts.


Why Attend?
