LCI Community of Practice

Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Community of Practice, formerly the “Milwaukee Community of Practice” has adapted its name to better describe the areas they serve which includes Milwaukee, Madison and The Fox Valley!  The LCI Wisconsin Community of Practice is a robust, diverse group of professionals from across the design and construction industry passionate about bringing people together to increase the adoption of a Lean approach.
