Southern New England

Welcome to the LCI Southern New England Community of Practice (CoP)!

We are a community of owners, contractors, trade partners, architects, and designers with various levels of Lean experience who are passionate about applying Lean principles and practices with a common goal of improving project outcomes and delivering value to our owners. We repeatedly ask “why” to get to root causes and are not afraid to step outside of our comfort zones and try new and different approaches to increase stakeholder satisfaction and project delivery value. We also recognize that we are much stronger as collaborators than as separate thinkers, so we welcome your participation. We are seeking A/E/C/O industry professionals who want to join us “to find a better way.” In the spirit of continuous improvement, we are eager to learn from your experiences and share ours.
