Join Master Builders of Iowa and an expert in Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) and Lean design and construction for a full-day training session on Pull Planning and the Last Planner® System. This workshop will cover introductory level information, simulations and hands-on practical training to give you the knowledge to successfully start implementing the Last Planner® System at any phase of the building project with your project team or within your firm. This program is intended for individuals who have some basic understanding of Lean design and construction principles and who would like to learn more specifically about the Last Planner® System and the pull planning process. The Last Planner® System, one of the hallmark collaborative planning tools supporting lean design/construction projects, has been shown to streamline the collaborative scheduling process, increase plan reliability and productivity throughout multiple disciplines and provide a common platform for continuous improvement of the planning process. Understanding of the Last Planner® System is invaluable to firms and individuals progressing on their Lean journey.
