By having everyone together at the same time key bottlenecks can be identified and then worked through in order to establish the most efficient plan for project delivery. A collaborative plan at its most basic involves giving each trade a colour and then dividing what each trade needs to do into a series of smaller (usually daily) steps.

These steps are then superimposed onto a table which has key deadlines on it to understand how these deadlines can be met.

Once established a collaborative plan is then used to understand what jobs are happening on site on a daily basis, with a more structured review occurring on either a 4 or 10 week basis depending on the size of the project.
