Curious about the Last Planner® System and how it can help project teams improve workflow? Interested in how to use collaboration to determine how project work will be carried out? Then this session is for you!

The Last Planner® System was designed by construction for construction. Its intent is to help teams produce predictable workflow and rapid learning throughout all phases of a construction project.

Join us for this introductory workshop outlining the 5 elements of the Last Planner® System and how they are linked through continuous learning:

  • Master Schedule: Outlines milestones and interim milestones for the project.

  • Phase Pull Plan: Collaboratively identify required activities, durations, and hand-offs.

  • Look-Ahead: Identify and remove constraints early.

  • Weekly Work Plan: Make commitments regarding what work will be completed the following week.

  • Daily Huddles: Stay connected and adjust the plan as needed.


Delivery Method: Virtual Session – Zoom Webinar

Course Fee Includes:  Access to the course, course materials, and upon completion a digital certificate if requested.

  1. Webcam (Mandatory)– in order to engage and collaborate, participants will be expected to have their webcams on for the duration of the class

  2. Microphone (Mandatory)

  3. Internet connection- For best results, you will want to ensure you have an internet connection with an upload/download speed of 3-5 Mbps. You can test your internet speed here. The minimum recommended speed is 1.5 Mbps, but anything below 3 Mbps may result in loss of quality or buffering. Ideally hardwired connection versus wireless for stability - connect your computer directly to your router using an ethernet cable, rather than using your home wi-fi.
