It's All About The Schedule:

How Operationalizing Your Schedule Can Radically Improve Margins

While the fundamentals of Project Production Management (PPM) closely align to the reality of construction projects and the risks associated with them, PPM is far from being "the norm". Understanding PPM can help teams effectively identify the often-overlooked risks that put projects and schedules in jeopardy. Practices - such as the Last Planner System or Takt planning - are used by teams to better see the effect of the production laws on the flow of work, but are still underutilized throughout the industry.

- How planning for continuous flow can help teams work efficiently and meet planned milestones
- How teams can minimize variation and avoid costly "stops and starts"
- Why systems such as Last Planner System enable teams to finish projects early
- How some of the "normal" ways of working may actually be making your projects longer and costing you money
