Pull Planning with the Villego® Simulation

Date: Thursday, November 17th
Time: 2:00 pm to 7:30pm
Location: Drinker Biddle & Reath
191 N. Upper Wacker Drive
Suite 3700

Chicago, IL  60606


The Villego® Simulation is a Last Planner®/Pull Planning tool designed to help construction professionals effectively understand and implement Lean construction on their own projects.  The simulation compares at least two Lego building exercises – with each round becoming more and more “Lean” as the simulation progresses.  It offers a strong teaching/learning dichotomy between traditional management techniques and superior Lean techniques.  The simulation is appropriate for newcomers as well as Lean champions. 

Kate Calenberg started her career at Skender Construction over 12 years ago. During that time, she was able to build her Lean Construction skills completing ground up, interior, and healthcare projects. She was recently promoted, becoming Skender’s Talent and Development Manager, and is creating and implementing training programs to nurture professional growth for all Skender employees. Among a variety of training modules, Basics of Lean, Pull Planning, and the Villego Simulation are included in Kate’s onboarding and continual education programs.
