Pull Planning
The Importance of Tracking & Holding Teams Accountable in Project Planning & Execution

June 5, 2018 2 – 3 pm EST

As our economy continues to surge, companies are forced to produce key deliverables in less time, with less resources. The Last Planner System has been the go-to solution for creating integrated schedules for our projects. However, we are hearing more and more that Pull Planning Sessions are becoming a “Waste Of Time”. We would like to break down the Pull Plan and discuss the reasons why the system fails and develop strategies to ensure success. Dynalectric Colorado has acted both as a Trade Partner and a General Contractor and has seen both sides of this issue.

Engaging the Last Planner System has been proven to improve project planning, scheduling, and provides a solid means for meeting tight deadlines. We will detail how to avoid the pitfalls we have experienced so that you can see the real benefits of the Last Planner System.
