Critical Chain in Practice



CRITICAL CHAIN IN PRACTICE: Using the Theory of Constraints to Manage Projects & Portfolios

The same cause always produces the same effect. This is the case with our projects. The project management methods did not really changed in a century when Henry Gantt invented his famous chart. The way we traditionally manage the inevitable hazards does not allow us to launch our products on time better nowadays than yesterday. The Critical Chain offers some way out to this vicious circle by applying some basic rules which could be difficult to implement without solid guidelines. This book describes concretely step by step the implementation of CCPM (Critical Chain Project Management) in a single project and in a project portfolio… in order to optimize our efforts and profitability!
