Tower Exercise Template

The Tower Exercise is a hands-on learning activity used in construction and project management training to teach the principles of pull planning, where participants collaboratively build a tower by sequencing tasks in reverse order to emphasize efficient workflow and coordination.


  • Discuss Dependencies: This will help participants understand the importance of task sequencing and collaboration.
  • Build the Tower: The construction should proceed from the last task (completion) to the first task (foundation).
  • Observe and Discuss: While the groups are working, observe their progress and discuss the challenges and benefits of pull planning. Ask questions to facilitate a debrief, such as:
    • Did you encounter any bottlenecks or delays in your construction process?
    • How did identifying task dependencies help or hinder your progress?
    • What did you learn about the importance of communication and collaboration?


This Tower Exercise is an effective way to engage participants in a hands-on learning experience that demonstrates the principles of pull planning in construction projects. It helps participants grasp the importance of proper task sequencing, communication, and collaboration to streamline project workflows.
