The LCI Lean Learning Series is a facilitated discussion-oriented event focused on a specific Lean subject matter. The event is more structured than a Lean Coffee yet shorter and less structured than a LCI education course. Its purpose is to provide just enough knowledge base to kick start an engaging Lean discussion amongst the participants.

This topic introduces Conditions of Satisfaction (CoS). Participants will gain insight to recognizing the project as a promise and the elements of making a sound promise, including CoS. They will discover how CoS relate to project delivery.

Lean/IPD Projects have been shown to out-perform traditionally delivered projects because there is a focus on alignment of interests, organizational integration, and agreement on project priorities for all parties involved. These project priorities are called Conditions of Satisfaction (CoS) in Lean/IPD Projects. These CoS guide decision making throughout development and implementation. When consensus is difficult to reach, these conditions become the measuring point from which to decide.
