It's possible to do more with less effort – which is important in Alberta's economy today, more than ever before.

By understanding the principles of Lean, business owners and managers can begin to lead change in their organizations, get employees engaged in solving problems, and begin to integrate continuous improvement thinking into their corporate culture. All of that will result in improved productivity and a happier customer.

No matter what your organization does, Lean will help you do it better. Lean methodology is being applied in a broad range of enterprises including construction, engineering, architecture, manufacturing, processing, health care, banking, and government services.

The LCI Edmonton Community of Practice hosts a bi-weekly Lean Coffee from 7:30-9am (locations vary). Lean practitioners from across the industry meet to discuss various Lean issues and lessons learned through a "structured agendaless" process whereby attendees decide the topics of conversation for the day.  All are welcome, from beginners to Lean experts, and there is no expectations for participation - some people come to every meeting, others come when they can.  The meetings are fun and tend to include a lot of laughter and we'd love to see you there.

For more information, or to be added to our mailout and CoP message board, please contact Avel Espiritu at Red-5. 

This is a program organized by the LCI-Canada Edmonton Community of Practice (CoP). More information LEAN practice and culture can be found at!
