The LCI Milwaukee 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. We are dedicated to raising awareness of Lean principles and strengthening Lean practices in the Milwaukee design and construction community 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

As part of the Lean Construction Institute, we provide regular informational and networking events focused on improving design and construction delivery. Whether you are just beginning with Lean or a seasoned Lean practitioner, we invite you to join us in sharing and exploring the possibilities and tools of Lean Design and Construction.

Visit the upcoming events section below; as events are opened for registration they will be visible here. Please use the associated link to register. Limited space is available for many of these events. Be sure to reserve your spot early.

Further along in your Lean journey? We’d love to hear from you as we move forward in developing deeper learning and application.
