Welcome to the best introduction to Takt Planning and Control Course in the world. Why should you learn and apply Takt?
Less than 30% of projects finish on time and we have the highest suicide, divorce, stress rates in the USA. Many of these problems come down to the inability to effectively plan and control the work onsite.
At a fundamental level, Takt helps create flow for the trades. It ensures that the workload is balanced and allows greater predictability in the schedule. A Takt plan is a visual plan that fits on a single sheet of paper which the whole project team can understand and execute.
The goal of this course is to provide you with the knowledge, templates, and examples to create your own Takt plan. We will explain every step along the way and break down the principles and key concepts of Takt Planning and Control. In this 3-hour, 36 lesson course we will be covering 4 major modules:
- Why Use Takt in Construction
- Principles of Takt
- How to Apply Takt in Construction
