Description

Description

Even the best plans are out of date within days – or even hours. Construction, like design, is a dynamic and quickly changing environment and outdated schedules are useless. Learn why Daily Huddles are the key to schedule success, and how to run them quickly and effectively. Learn how to run productive Weekly Check-Ins as part of the Foreman’s meetings. Learn the roles and responsibilities of each team member and how to communicate expectations. Master the “Make Work Ready” process, looking ahead 4-6 weeks to identify and remove Constraints (those boulders, rocks and pebbles that can derail your schedule). And learn quick and easy ways to measure and track PPC (Percent of Promises Complete) and analyze reasons for variance to keep every team member accountable to the whole team’s success.

This Course focuses on the five Last Planner® key principles:

1. Those who do the work, plan the work. The “Last Planners®” (trade foremen, designers, suppliers etc.) often plan with a combined experience of 300+ years.

2. Detailed planning and reliable commitments are made as the tasks get close (within 2 weeks)

3. Identify constraints of planned tasks and remove them in advance of the work.

4. Reliable promises are made and kept by the Last Planners – 80%-90% of the time (up from 54% average)

5. Reasons for missed commitments are used to develop organizational learning capability and create a culture of continuous improvement.

NOTE: Although this Course can stand alone and bring great value, it is strongly encouraged that it be purchased with Course 1A – Foundations, for maximum value.
