As with many Lean methodologies, Collaborative Planning is so simple that you can’t imagine how it wasn’t implemented before. It’s a paper-based methodology to drive efficiency and maintain multi-party contractor relationships working smoothly. We love it because there’s no expensive technology to worry about – and we can often get a 20% increase in throughput.
Collaborative Planning is easy to implement, paper-based and yet delivers rapid results. It brings dispersed teams together and forces stakeholders to work together at the start of every shift, to collaborate in whatever way is required to get a project over the line.
From leadership teams to the lowliest of subcontractors, CP gives everyone visibility of upcoming challenges and a clear understanding of what’s required today and up to three weeks ahead.
