LCI Trademarks: Current Usage Guidance


Last Planner System®
LPS®
Last Planner® - this is in reference to the person as the last planner – not the system.

Use of the marks: In written documents – articles, press releases, promotional materials, and the like -- it is only necessary to use a symbol with the first instance of the mark, or with the most prominent placement of the mark. It is a common misconception that each and every instance of the mark should bear a trademark symbol. Overuse creates visual clutter and may detract from the aesthetic appeal of the piece. Provided there is at least one conspicuous use of the TM, SM, or ® on the face of the writing, do not be afraid to eliminate superfluous markings.
