Greater Des Moines

Welcome to the LCI Greater Des Moines Community of Practice.  Located in the Greater Des Moines area, our mission is to connect A/E firms, contractors, trade partners, owners, and other stakeholders to transform the design and construction industry through Lean practices.  We are committed to pushing the envelope of what is possible through innovation, continuous learning, and collaboration.  Our ultimate goal is to set the benchmark for project value delivery in our industry. As part of the Lean Construction Institute, we serve as a local extension reaching out to design and construction stakeholders by:

  • Advancing Lean knowledge and understanding
  • Providing academic, applied and experiential learning opportunities that engage members at any point in their development of Lean mastery
  • Building a Lean network to better connect people and ideas

Whether you are new to Lean or you are a seasoned Lean practitioner, our Community of Practice aims at providing you with a dynamic and energizing forum where you will meet like-minded individuals and/or organizations that want to take their value proposition and value delivery to the next level.
