Yes You Can!  Using Last Planner in ALL phases of design.  


Guest Speakers:

Jennifer Hastings, Boulder Associates

Tracy Gordon, Boulder Associates

Romano Nickerson, Boulder Associates




This will be a presentation exploring lessons learned including:  

There has been healthy dialogue in recent years regarding the appropriateness and efficacy of production planning tools in early phases of design.  Two teams from Boulder Associates’ office in Sacramento have discovered compelling ways of leveraging Last Planner as a production planning tool in all phases of design, from initial project setup to post-occupancy review.  

Date and Time:

Wednesday, August 14, 2013
5:00 - 8:00 p.m.


Cancellation Deadline:  Tuesday, August 6, 2013. There will be no refunds after this time. Each person must register and pay to attend the meeting and dinner. Please help us save time, expense, and avoid people showing up at the last minute… plan ahead.


Value-Added Proposition:

Come hear how Tracy and Jenny lead their interdisciplinary design teams (which are responsible for more than 50 active projects!) using Last Planner as a tool for process, planning, and control through all phases of design.  Learn how they have leveraged team planning to develop standard work, to help junior staff to learn and mature, to manage work across multiple offices, and to still have a healthy life away from work.
