Get hands-on Last Planner experience with Villego! The Last Planner System will help you build safer, faster, better, cheaper and more predictably in comparison to current/traditional ways of project management. Those who already use Last Planner know that to make LPS really work, its important for all involved to understand how and why it works. Learning LPS on the job is the most effective way to learn, but it takes time. With people new to LPS, the challenge is to build that understanding quickly and thoroughly. Speed up the learning curve by starting off using Villego. Visit www.villego.com for more information.
Attendees from cross functional roles as designers, constructors, owners, trade partners and associations are welcome to participate. No previous Lean experience is required.
Many thanks to the event sponsor INTEGRIS for providing lunch to all attendees
