LCI Northern Ohio CoP

During this session, participants will learn why it is important to collaboratively plan during design phases and how Last Planner System® (LPS®) is an effective tool to support improved delivery for their projects. This use of LPS® is adapted to the specifics of design, which is about advancing the flow of information. Last Planner System® has been used by teams during design to stabilize their delivery process by keeping all team members’ needs being met reliably. This LCI education course will include a learning simulation to support the concepts.

Learning Objectives:

  • Why teams are more effective
  • The principles supporting Last Planner System®
  • Last Planner System® beyond just the Pull-planning session
  • How the principles are adapted for design phase vs. construction
  • Real team examples and experiences will be shared
