Build With Us: Communities of Practice

Virtual | Statewide | Industry-Specific 

The MLC has established eight unique COPs with a diverse focus. These groups are currently at different levels of maturity ranging from infancy to already holding coffee chats and events. This is an excellent opportunity for you to become involved in a subject matter that you have a great interest in with other professionals to share Lean information and learnings/experiences.

What is a Lean Community of Practice?

Lean Communities of Practice (COPs) are structured groups of professionals within a similar technical or business industry. The COPs are scheduled to allow members to regularly share information, improve Lean skills, and actively work on advancing the general knowledge of Lean in their industry. COPs are conducted over virtual meeting space to connect Lean professionals throughout Michigan.

All Lean Practitioners Welcome:

  • Leverage our MLC membership knowledge base in your industry
  • Focus on implementation of Lean tools in your profession
  • Opportunity to network with similar industry professionals
  • Share best business practices
  • Stay connected with other MLC members across Michigan
  • Join us for structured discussion with industry leaders
  • Learn about MLC and upcoming events

Below, you will find the contact information for the Co-Leads of our growing Communities of Practice group. They are very excited to hear from you!
