Alabama Community of Practice (CoP)
Design & Construction at the Edge of Chaos
Group Forum Discussion
Happy Thanksgiving from the LCI Alabama Community of Practice!
Our next meeting is coming near. It's been said that design and construction is organized chaos. So it's fitting that our next LCI meeting will be held at the innovation space at UAB's Lister Hill Library, aptly called The Edge of Chaos!
Unlike our previous events where we have outside speakers, the last meeting of our inaugural year will be a moderated discussion exploring the issues that are getting in the way of our having successful projects. This will be enlightening for your clients and project partners to attend, since educating them about lean principles can be a significant step forward to your project's success. Our goal is for you to come away with meaningful alternatives to the chaotic way we are currently designing and building projects.
Lunch will be provided with your purchase of an event ticket.
Parking is suggested at the 9th Avenue public parking deck, which is adjacent to the School of Public Health. There is a $2 charge for the first hour and each hour thereafter is an additional $1.
