Event Description
Curious about the Last Planner® System and how it can help project teams improve workflow? Interested in how to use collaboration to determine how project work will be carried out? Then this session is for you!

The Last Planner® System was designed by construction for construction. Its intent is to help teams produce predictable workflow and rapid learning throughout all phases of a construction project.
Join us for this introductory workshop outlining the 5 elements of the Last Planner® System and how they are linked through continuous learning:
• Master Schedule: Outlines milestones and interim milestone for the project
• Phase Pull Plan: Collaboratively identify required activities, durations, and hand-offs
• Look-Ahead: Identify and remove constraints early
• Weekly Work Plan: Make commitments regarding what work will be completed the following week
• Daily Huddles: Stay connected and adjust the plan as needed
The presenter: Christy Nikel is the President and Principal of Lean U Consulting, located in Vancouver, BC.  As a Master Lean Black Belt with more than 17 years of experience teaching and applying the tools, her goal is to share Lean thinking in a practical, effective and energizing way.

  1. Computer or laptop
    • This course will involve on-screen interaction with your instructor and classmates, reading/viewing on-screen content (slides or videos), and interacting via typing with questions or responses. For this reason, cell-phones or tablets may not be adequate.

    • Downloading of the Zoom app will ensure a much faster experience
  2. Internet connection - For best results, you will want to ensure you have an internet connection with an upload/download speed of 3-5 Mbps. You can test your internet speed here. Minimum recommended speed is 1.5 Mbps, but anything below 3 Mbps may result in loss of quality or buffering. Ideally hardwired connection versus wireless for stability - connect your computer directly to your router using an ethernet cable, rather than using your home wi-fi.
  3. A quiet space with minimal distractions - microphone will be engaged for interactive sessions. Please plan to be fully engaged in the class and clear your work schedule just as you would for the in-class program.
