Success Stories

At DELTA, we’re privileged to have been part of successful Lean projects that have reshaped the landscape of construction and infrastructure. Our journey includes contributing to significant milestones in the industry, such as:

Fletcher Building | Lean Continuous Improvement Lead | 2016 – 2017

We had the privilege of collaborating with Fletcher Building to develop and implement Lean principles within the NZICC project. By driving the development of in-house training materials, promoting lean culture, and implementing the Last Planner system, we contributed to saving over $2.7 million in overtime charges in just six weeks.

Waterview Alliance | Research Analyst and Performance Improvement Lead | 2014 – 2017

As part-time contractors for the Waterview Connection project, we played a vital role in optimizing operations and boosting productivity. Through the implementation of Lean culture principles and the Last Planner system, we achieved remarkable outcomes, including $15 million in savings, accelerated project timelines, and improved fatigue management for engineering and project management teams.

Course Details


Amidst the backdrop of persisting low productivity in the New Zealand construction sector, this hands-on workshop-style training becomes increasingly invaluable. Designed to equip construction professionals, including project managers, site managers, planners, supervisors, and tradespeople, with the practical knowledge, skills, and tools needed to effectively implement the Last Planner System (LPS), this course offers a timely solution to industry challenges. Beyond theory, participants will gain actionable strategies for achieving collaborative success in construction projects, addressing the pressing need for enhanced productivity and efficiency in the sector.

  • Explore the practical implementation of LPS to measure its impact on your projects.
  • Equip yourself with essential skills, tools (such as our Visual Planning Board), and measurable metrics to successfully implement LPS.
  • Learn from a leading LPS researcher and practitioner to gain insights proven to deliver measurable improvements beyond traditional programs.
  • Implement LPS and track progress with a strategic roadmap for success in your construction projects.

This training extends beyond the construction team; we welcome participants from administration and office roles, as well as data and reporting teams. Their practical understanding can aid in integrating data and metrics, enriching project metrics with multi-dimensional insights.

Sustainability and Lean Practices:

Explore the intersection of sustainable construction principles with Lean practices, emphasizing social responsibility and economic efficiency. Understand how Lean methodologies enhance sustainability in project management and delivery, fostering environmentally conscious and socially responsible construction practices.

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the key principles and components of the Last Planner System (LPS).
  • Describe the benefits of implementing LPS for improved project reliability and reduced variation.
  • Apply a holistic and innovative approach to implementing LPS, incorporating visual and collaborative planning techniques such as Root Cause Analysis (RCA), 5 Whys, and 5S Methodology, to develop actionable project plans.
  • Develop a roadmap for integrating LPS and other Lean tools into their own projects or organizations.
