Introduction to Last Planner® System

Unpredictable workflows correlate with an increase to construction costs and schedules. In response to 1990s research revealing 54 percent of construction project commitments were completed on time, LCI developed the Last Planner® System (LP®S) with five levels designed to help project teams maintain reliable workflow while maximizing efficiency and safety. Now, you can complete LCI’s Introduction to Last Planner® System to learn how it improves communication, trust and transparency across all stakeholders. Engage in group discussions and see for yourself how variations in flow impact the entire project with the Parade of Trades simulation embedded in this 4-hour LCI education course.

  • Understand an overview of each of the 5 connected conversations of LP®S and how they inter-relate
  • Recognize the need for reliability on projects and how LP®S produces it
  • Identify the need to reduce variation in work flow and how LP®S supports this
  • Know the basic mechanics of the 5 connected conversations of LP®S
