Who Should Attend: Effective Work Planning for Foremen is designed for foremen of all levels of experience and all trades. It also serves as a good back-to-basics refresher for superintendents.
Sadly, proper detailed planning is becoming a lost art in the construction industry. This course aims to reverse that trend by providing foremen with a strong model that will improve their crews’ (and by extension their companies’) performance. The course focuses on providing a strong foundational knowledge of task planning that can be applied to any work and is equally applicable to the foremen of trade and general contractors. Using an interactive classroom presentation and hands-on table exercises, attendees are taken through a back-to-basics approach to site planning. Coming out of the course, attendees will have built their own plan and 2 week lookahead schedule for an example activity. They will also be provided with blank templates they can use to apply the knowledge they’ve gained on their own work activities going forward.
Attendees will strengthen their skill (and value to their companies) by gaining a strong foundation in practical task planning. Working with hands-on, practical exercises, they work through the various elements needed to put together a complete activity plan for their crew. Course topics include calculating manpower needs, determining material and equipment needs, building quality and safety into the plan and much more!
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
