LCANZ Webinar: ‘From Chaos to Commitment’ How to get better plans and reduce risk on your infrastructure project

Join Lean Construction ANZ  for a webinar on ‘From Chaos to Commitment’ How to get better plans and reduce risk on your infrastructure project



Construction projects are chaotic!

We go in with a plan but no plan survives first contact. On any given week, our industry typically only achieves half of the commitments it plans.

What impact does this have on project outcomes and on us?

Join global construction leaders, Paul Ebbs and Phil Hendy, as they present an established and proven systems approach to planning that engages with the people responsible to execute the work and builds understanding, trust and co-reliance between partners to achieve your master plan. Your teams can create more reliable plans that reduce delays and minimise associated cost blow outs.

Risks are realised and mistakes happen on infrastructure projects. However, while it is not always possible to stop an unknown risk from impacting production or from a mistake from happening, it is possible to stop them from reoccurring. By integrating risk management principles with the Last Planner® System your teams can leverage years of diverse experience to integrate countermeasures to known risks and mistakes in design and construction plans.

The webinar will cover:

  1. What makes project chaotic
  2. The Last Planner System® (LPS): A proven systems approach that accepts change and enables reliable planning
  3. How LPS is being used to increase reliability of infrastructure projects in Australia
  4. How risk can be managed through LPS
  5. How to get started with LPS on your project

28th October at 5.30pm-6.30pm AEST online

This virtual event will be available via registration at the LCANZ webinar streaming channel.
