Unpredictable workflows correlate with an increase in construction costs and schedules. The Last Planner System® (LPS®) was developed to improve predictability while maximizing efficiency and safety. In the Introduction To The Last Planner System course, you will discover the five connected planning conversations of LPS and how they improve communication, trust, transparency and reliability. This course, which includes real-life examples of LPS implementation will be a first step in mastering the System.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize the need for predictability on projects and how LPS creates more predictable outcomes.
  2. Gain an overview understanding of each of the five connected planning conversations of LPS and how they interrelate.
  3. Discover the basic mechanics of LPS including the foundational base of reliable commitments.
  4. Understand the need for continuous learning and for measuring reliability to improve predictability.

This 4-hour Last Planner training will teach field supervisors some of the most effective ways to participate in or run the LPS® on a project. It is a hands-on course where you will learn the LPS meeting structure, pull planning tactics, weekly work planning, and the daily huddle. You will leave with practical knowledge that you can apply on your projects right away. Note: this course is for field supervisors only (foremen and above).
