Lean Community of Practice

UC Davis Lean Community of Practice

The Lean Community of Practice works to expand the knowledge of Lean principles and practices and serves to support and promote a continuous improvement culture at UC Davis. By leveraging our collective knowledge, we want to build a broad and diverse network of practitioners interested in creating an agile, sustainable and supportive infrastructure and a culture of continuous improvement at UC Davis.

Community Goals

  1. Create a learning forum focused on developing Lean and continuous improvement skills
  2. Increase members knowledge and competency in Lean and continuous improvement
  3. Increase campus community knowledge in Lean and continuous improvement

The Lean Community of Practice will serve as a forum to connect people, enable dialogue, stimulate learning, improve skills, share knowledge, and generate new knowledge and much more. Lean, at its core, is about practicing respect for people and continuous improvement every day, with everyone. Through the sharing of a common language and experiences, we strive to use this forum to share tips, best practices, resources and institutional knowledge to align and support our organizational missions.

Membership will consist of Lean and Continuous Improvement enthusiasts who are willing to share their experiences and learn from other like-minded individuals. Members have varying levels of training and experience in Lean and continuous improvement.

Virtual meetings will be held bi-monthly; topics and areas of focus are driven by participant feedback. The agenda may include case studies with group feedback, solutions brainstorming, process walks, observations, and learning from guest speakers. To submit a topic for a future agenda please email Bernadette Hill.
