About the LCS community

The LCS Community is a place where lean practitioners can come together to communicate ideas, debate issues, find information and solve problems. It facilitates ‘peer-to-peer’ learning – that is, when everyone can be both a teacher and a learner – by promoting collaboration, networking, discussion and information sharing, leveraging the collective knowledge and experience of the community.

Benefits of becoming a practitioner member

  • Exclusive access to resources and information which allows you to develop your learning and practice in lean.
  • Join in or initiate discussions via our online forum. Solve problems, share research, collaborate with like-minded practitioners and connect or network in private groups.
  • Promote your lean credentials to the community through your online digital profile.
  • Access to LCS Continuing Professional Development as a Premium Practitioner Member, providing a framework for ongoing personal development (set to launch in late 2020).

Resources available

Practitioners have access to a wide range of lean-related resources including videos, articles, downloads, training materials, reports and guides as well as our online forum.
