How to Create Project Flow: A Webinar Recap

Written by :

Dave Finnegan


Read a recap of our recent webinar on improving flow and the value of using Takt on construction projects.

Construction productivity has steadily declined since the 70s. The reason? Everyone lost track of production by focusing on deadlines.

When teams get too caught up in following the critical path, the project remains siloed, and handoffs are hindered.

Touchplan recently hosted a webinar entitled How to Create Project Flow | Your Schedule is Why Your Late, which examined how to balance trade production and area completion.

Andrew Piland was joined by Wane Lott of Lott Brothers Construction, where they discussed various topics, including how to create a balanced production front and a better way to look at and use Takt planning as part of construction project management.

Three main takeaways from the conversation include:

  • Using a combination of a matrix (like Clear Flow Matrix – created by Wayne Lott) and a Construction Planning System like Touchplan is an excellent way to apply Takt planning to your construction project.
  • Construction productivity has been declining over the past few decades, and this can largely be attributed to poor communication of management strategy.
  • Methodologies like Takt planning (enforced by software like Clear Matric and Touchplan) are meant to build flow into a construction project and avoid a negative vortex of delays and disorganization.
