Organizer Colorado Lean Network

Organizer of Project Management 101: Planning and Tracking



The Colorado Lean Network (CLN) works to inspire, develop, and support improvement practitioners to better serve Colorado organizations and communities by connecting existing and aspiring practitioners to the right mentors, models, and resources.


The Colorado Lean Network evolved organically after practitioners at Denver WaterDenver Peak AcademyDenver Health and Hospital Authority realized the growing need for a professional Lean group around the Denver area in 2012. The group started hosting quarterly meetings with 10-20 attendees and that number quickly grew.  In 2014, the first Mile High Lean Summit (now called the Colorado Lean Summit) was held. Since that time, our group has grown rapidly with members from all over the state–including members from the Colorado State Office for Performance Planning and Operations.
