Lean Construction and Pull Planning Workshop

a practical workshop for site-level planners

 One 7-hour session

This program is not scheduled at this time  but we can bring it to you

Lean construction methods are being used by more and more project teams to manage and ultimately deliver projects in more efficient ways.  “Pull Planning” is the preferred method for short interval planning when a team embraces these lean construction principles.

This all day practical work shop explores what lean construction is, how it is implemented, the paradigm shift it represents, and the role it will play in the future of construction.  Participants will engage in a mock “Pull Planning” session as part of this workshop
