For the first time, the LCI Immersive Education Program launched an eLearning course, Introduction to Last Planner® System, that will award a certificate of completion and a badge eLearners can add to their email signature to show they are on the path to advancing their Lean journey.
E-Learners will only receive the downloadable badge and certificate if they complete the knowledge checks and final assessment with a score of 80 percent or higher. With the videos, downloadable resources, diagrams and hands-on interaction, eLearners can expect to retain up to 60 percent more information than with Instructor-Led Training (ILT) in the classroom!
Why is Last Planner® System (LPS) education important to the design and construction industry?
When asked how well current project planning practices can predict how much work will be completed in a week, foremen with at least 15 years of experience were surveyed and reported only 54 percent of the work was completed. When work does not get finished, the entire schedule and budget are impacted. Today, 70 percent of projects are delivered late and 73 percent are over budget; but Lean processes like LPS can improve project outcomes.
LPS includes five connected conversations or levels that help superintendents, foremen and project teams:
The Introduction to Last Planner® System eLearning will allow busy Lean design and construction practitioners to gain in-depth, practical knowledge for effective LPS implementation in 60 percent less time than ILT in the classroom by accessing eLearning from any smart device at any time. We anticipate participants will invest an average of 90 minutes in this course.
The eLearning doesn’t stop there! LCI is in the process of developing additional eLearning courses such as Introduction to Lean Project Delivery and Introduction to Lean in Design to provide a continuous learning path for Lean professionals seeking to improve the way they work.
