The Last Planner method1 represents a radically different manner of controlling production in
construction. Even if its benefits are widely observed, it is also a common observation that the
introduction of the Last Planner method to a site, into a company or into a country is not an easy
and uncomplicated task. This paper reports on the experiences and lessons gained during the
introduction of the Last Planner to Finland. A simplified explanation of Last Planner is presented.
The experiences and lessons gained are contrasted with those presented in prior literature.
