Event description

Description

This two-day project bootcamp introduces project team members to the key ideas underpinning the application of lean thinking in design and construction and to each other. It sets the team up to work effectively together and enables them to quickly engage with the last planner process and other applications of lean thinking on the project. It can also provide a way to introduce the key ideas of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD).

Design and construction are examples of project-based production and both are different from the kind of series production found in manufacturing organizations.

Lean Construction is a new way to think about the management of work in projects so as to enable the transformation of materials to create the value that customers want in a process that flows with as little waste and interruption as possible.

Developed specifically to help create more predictable production in building, engineering and infrastructure construction, LastPlanner® is now being used to stabilise productionin other project-based environments such as defense, software development, aircraft maintenance, ship-building & repair + shutdown maintenance in bio-tech, pharma, oil, gas & chemical plants.

Project-based production is a social process. LPS helps ensure reliable project delivery through a structured series of conversations for action that ultimately bring all the flows required to do the work together where the work will be done so that what should be done can be done.

This interactive two-day workshop will help you understand the potential power of Lean applied to design, construction and other project-based production environments and how the Last Planner System (LPS) can help you get started on your lean journey in both projects & in your organization.

The workshop is based around a number of carefully chosen simulations designed to help you confront issues in your own practice so that you can evaluate the relevance and value of applying these principles and ideas to yourself, your work and your business.


Day 1: Introduction to lean

Even though design and construction are examples of project-based production, we start day 1 with a production experience to understand key lean principles - value, value stream, flow, pull and pursuit of perfection. The idea is to create a vocabulary and then to begin to explore how that vocabulary can be used to improve the way that work works in design and construction projects and the enterprises that support them.

During this first day you will:

  • learn the 5 key lean principles and think through the benefits of applying lean principles and ideas in your organization/projects
  • experience the difference between "system change" and "continual improvement” and think about how you can use them on your projects and in your organizations
  • explore the implications of changing batch or zone sizes for production flow in design and in construction
  • discuss ways in which you can learn more about putting the ideas we will discuss into practice - e.g. via CoP, SAT, 5S, LPS, SMED, &c.

Day 1 is built around a number of tried and tested simulations and supported by videos and case studies of practice


Day 2: Introduction to Last Planner

The second day is about creating reliable production on-site and in the design office and introduces the Last Planner System.

Good planning matters because it leads to effective actions that produce desired results. That’s why it matters how you plan. Many organizations have found that Last Planner (LPS) is an effective way to manage the range of planning conversations that together create safer and more predictable project delivery, on-time and within budget.

LPS enables the delivery team to concentrate on what is important: the benefits that effective planning delivers to all stakeholders.

During this second day you will:

  • learn about the five crucial planning conversations in the Last Planner System
  • experience the difference between using them and not using them
  • learn the basics of collaboration, collaborative planning, learning from experience
  • understand the benefits of using the Last Planner System in its entirety
  • develop awareness of the importance of creating a system change in project delivery
  • learn how you can help your project teams deploy Last Planner

Day 2 is designed around two further simulations, one developed by LCI in the US and the other, Villego®, designed in the Netherlands, to help train individuals and teams in the key elements of LPS.


Is this workshop for you?

This workshop is aimed at two different and complementary audiences:

  • Those who want an introductory workshop on Lean Thinking and Last Planner in Construction
  • Experienced Project Managers, Lean trainers and consultants who want to evaluate this form of project boot camp (and/or the Villego simulation) for use with their project teams and in their organizations.

Used as part of the induction for a project, this two-day boot-camp can help get the project team started on the right foot. It enables senior managers to understand why LPS is a better way and has helped them understand what they need to do to nurture it across their organization.

What is new about this workshop?

The deep integration of lean principles with the idea of system change,

  • the view of Last Planner as a system change for construction,

  • the Villego® Last Planner simulation and its integration with LCI’s Parade of Trades.

Who is the trainer?

Alan Mossman BArch MBScAn adviser on lean transformation and Last Planner in design and construction, Alan trained as an architect and then in management and organization development and has been a socio-technical systems consultant since 1988. He only returned to construction in 2001 building on his knowledge and understanding of collaboration, systems thinking, variation, quality and lean. Based in UK, he coaches people involved in Last Planner and lean transformations primarily in construction and design. He has worked with teams, projects and organizations in the UK, Netherlands, Portugal, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Norway, South Africa, Zimbabwe, New Zealand and Australia.A regular speaker and facilitator at Lean Construction conferences, congresses and seminars in the US and Europe, he was a founding co-editor of the Lean Construction Journal until 2012 and is now Editor- at-Large. He is a member of the Lean Construction Institute in the US, the International Group for Lean Construction and the European Group for Lean Construction. He was a founding Director of the Lean Construction Institute UK, stepping down in March 2010 and has supported the formation of a number of communities of practice in Europe.Alan has taught lean construction modules on the MSc programme at Loughborough University and at Nottingham Trent University’s Centre for Lean Projects with Prof Christine Pasquire, both in the UK. With Natalie J Sayer he is interviewing many of the pioneering practitioners in Lean Construction around the world to find out what they have learned on their lean journeys.Managing Director of the Change Business Ltd, Alan is a member of the LCI (US) Education Committee and has developed a version of day 2 of this program for helping Corporate Leaders understand what is different about supporting Last Planner managed projects compared to traditionally managed projects.
