Lean delivery principles such as the Last Planner System® are recognized as highly-effective in the optimization of project execution. But what happens when a core principle, such as operating in a Big Room setting, cannot be implemented due to the team’s geographic location or pandemic? When the team must operate virtually in total or in part, breakout conversations, maintaining a common live view of the developing plan, and even something as simple as filling out a sticky note require a different approach. This session will explore how project teams were able to evolve their processes and techniques to effectively execute pull planning with a virtual team.

Learning Objectives

  • Review key challenges when executing Pull Planning in a virtual environment.
  • Identify techniques to establish integrated team activity and constraint flows using web-based platforms.
  • Explore methods to ensure team visibility and effective use of the pull plan outside of facilitated sessions.
