Description

Making the Last Planner® System Work on your Next Project: What We've Learned from Two Decades of Practice

A LeanProject Workshop


Tom Richert and John Draper both learned the Last Planner® System from Glenn Ballard and Greg Howell near the time it was first developed. Tom led the first implementation of Last Planner® in New England in 2001. John continues to work with Glenn and the Project Production Systems Laboratory including support for 2016 publication of the Current Process Benchmark for the Last Planner® System.

Our observations these past two decades have identified several distinguishing characteristics of successful Last Planner® projects. In addition to an explanation of how the elements of the Last Planner® work together the workshop will focus on what is required for the Last Planner® System to work.


Participants can expect to learn the following:

  1. How teams leverage the power of the Last Planner® System as a construct for effective project planning, execution, observation and learning conversations.
  2. How teams focus on reliable promising to establish a network of commitments that reduces variability and the associated waste of added costs and time.
  3. How teams use a small batch strategy during pull planning to shorten project times and improve productivity without adding resources.


This workshop is for individuals working at all levels of design and construction in the building industry as part of or in support of project teams. Participants will engage in a number of simulations designed to improve the understanding of Lean design and construction practices as they relate to an effective use of the Last Planner® System. We will also discuss some of the misconceptions about the Last Planner® System that hinder teams from using it properly.
