More Information

Workshop Topics

Your industry peers will drive the conversation about the impact Lean approaches can make on project outcomes from decreasing project delays to creating a healthy work culture of respect and innovation. To emphasize the practical applications of Lean, participants will hear different ways Lean improved the daily work of a project manager and BIM Manager in a video Southland Industries filmed on site at the VNGC Hospital project. Attendees will decide on-site which topics to pursue in breakout discussion sessions based on a list of potential subjects, such as:

  • Achieving buy-in
  • Better practices for onboarding
  • Lean education in the field
  • CPM/technology overlay, integration
  • Role of re-planning and Lookahead planning
  • Role of senior management
  • Scalability to large (or small) projects
  • Others to be added (bring your hot topic – group votes will drive topics)

Who should attend?

This event is specifically tailored for those with considerable workface experience in implementing Last Planner® and other Lean techniques on projects. There will be a brief survey response required to help us assess that attendees have the Lean project experience necessary to participate fully and effectively in the workshop. We want attendees to be able to contribute from their experience, as well as gain from the insights of others. If you have gained such experience in Lean implementation and are looking to collaborate with others on their challenges and successes, this is the event for you. This is a highly collaborative forum for superintendents, foremen, and tactical field managers to share in a small-scale learning environment (40-50 attendees) in an approach geared to providing in-depth learning and sharing. Build connections among experienced peers for continued knowledge sharing across regions during and after the event. Send this flyer to any experienced Last Planner®s and Lean pracitioners who could benefit from this workshop.
