8 KEY CONVERSATIONS OF THE LAST PLANNER SYSTEM® AT THE HEART OF SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS

For the last 18 years, Alan has seen the Last Planner System as 5+1 conversations that bring a project to life. He now realizes that it is at least 8 structured conversations. In this session, Alan will introduce the promise cycle which sits at the heart of the system. Each of the 8 conversations helps build project knowledge and makes the LPS the engine for everyday learning and everyday improvement both in design and construction.

SUPPORTING CROSS-DISCIPLINARY DECISION-MAKING WITH CHOOSING BY ADVANTAGES

Delivering projects with complex success criteria, e.g. UN Sustainability Goals, requires collaboration. A decision-making process is critical to understand the different perspectives and to support cross-disciplinary conversations. Choosing by Advancing (CBA) is a system that supports transparency and traceability when a team has to deal with contradictory criteria. In this session, Annett and Randi will discuss why decision-making methods are crucial to deliver sustainable projects and how CBA enables cross-disciplinary conversations.

YOU CAN'T MANAGE WHAT YOU CAN'T MEASURE – A DATA-DRIVEN APPROACH TO SUPPORT LEAN CONSTRUCTION

Data-driven dashboards, and related remarks and alarms, makes potential project problems visible from early on and helps identify early warning signs. This can also enable us to predict if a project will face any problems and hence mitigate that before the situation escalates. In this session, Sakari will demonstrate how data-driven dashboards support Lean Construction efforts in multiple different ways and how you can't manage what you can't measure.
