Yesterday ABC-VA members attended Pull Planning with Tom Patton of the Project Management Services Bureau in our Northern Virginia Training Facility. Attendees learned about this interactive and engaging new scheduling method while working in teams. The students learned how to the integrate the Master Schedule, the Phase Pull, the Look Ahead, Constraints and the Weekly work plan. They also learned to monitor and measure how well the teams followed the plan through PPC tracking using sticky notes on the wall instead of computers. ABC-VA would like to thank our instructor, Tom Patton, for leading this exciting new course!
