Aerosud talks about Critical Chain Project Management on it's website

Aerosud talks about Critical Chain Project Management on it's website | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it
[...] CCPM planning results in the identification of the project’s critical chain, this is the longest path of dependent tasks and is therefore the constraint of the project which in turn determines the time duration of the project. When executing the project, CCPM focuses on the efficient completion of the critical chain tasks. At Aerosud a visual means of focus has been implemented through the use of a significant object, known as a “mascot”. A “mascot” is given to the resource performing the task on the critical chain, upon completion of this task the mascot is then moved to the resource performing the next task on the critical chain. In so doing the “mascot” moves along the sequence of tasks making up the critical chain. With a “mascot” on his/her desk, the resource must only work on the critical chain task, in so doing multi-taking is eliminated and focus is ensured. Aerosud has implemented the use of several fun “mascots” to further visually enhance the significance of the critical chain task. ...

Discover the problem with conventional project management and why CCPM is not more mainstream.

[...] There are a number of reasons why CCPM is not mainstream: CCPM has lousy marketing The typical definition of critical chain project management is this: Critical chain project management (CCPM) is a method of planning and managing projects that emphasizes the resources required to execute project tasks. (Wikipedia) Not only does this not convey the real benefits of CCPM, it is highly unlikely to get a project manager very excited. CCPM has manufacturing roots A lot of the material on CCPM applies to manufacturing environments, since it is based on the Theory of Constraints (TOC), which was developed for manufacturing. This is likely to be off putting to project managers in non-manufacturing environments. CCPM is induces discomfort People grow comfortable with the old ways of doing things. They have been doing it this way for years. They are very good at doing it this way. Now you want them to change to do it a different way. Even if it’s better, it takes them out of their comfort zone and all they see is more work.

I have seen too many mistakes in trying to implement a TOC solution where one or more of the basic assumptions are not valid. Hence, I like to highlight the specific assumptions behind CCPM.
