LCI Carolinas Community of Practice

Welcome to the Carolina's Lean Community of Practice.  Our Community of Practice was established in 2009 and continues to grow.  Our members span North Carolina from the Research Triangle area to Charlotte.   Currently our monthly meetings alternate between Charlotte and Raleigh Durham and we hold several all-day training sessions each year in Greensboro, NC.  We typically take the month off in July so that members can enjoy their summer vacations!  Our long term growth plan is to develop a large enough Practice to consistently hold session in Charlotte and Raleigh each month.  Each December, our core group meets to develop a list of topics for presentation in the upcoming year.  If there are topics that are of interest to you, please contact David Craft, dcraft@showalterconstruction.com,  or Katherine Copeland, kcopeland@southlandind.com, and we will do our best to incorporate the topic into the upcoming schedule.  If you are involved with a project or company that is implementing Lean design or construction and would like to make a presentation, please feel free to contact us.  Thank you for your interest in our Community of Practice.
