Critical Chain Project Management Overview in 20 minutes by Philip Marris

Philip Marris presented an overview of Critical Chain Project Management during the 38th TOCPA International conference in Paris. Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) is the component of the Theory Of Constraints (TOC) that deals with project management; both single projects and project portfolios. He explains when planning how to define "focussed task durations" and project buffers. He describes the dynamic execution logic based on the fever chart. He also emphasizes the importance of the powerful process of on-going improvement that is enabled by CCPM.

Philip Marris's curator insight, February 1, 2015 8:37 AM

One of the main CCPM reference books currently (2015).

Jan Rey's curator insight, July 6, 6:49 AM
Gerald Kendall and Kathy Austin wrote significant compendium for modern Multi-Project Management. Traditional approach to Project Management , based on based on Critical Path, causes multilevel pressure, local focus on thin sliced tasks and inability to recover time,  remains unchanged in their fundamentals. 
Advanced Multi-Project Management focus attention on perfect readiness before execution start. The aggressive planning of significant tasks (with check list in place of details in low level tasks) with precise definition of IN Entry Conditions and Task OUT-comes (definition of DONE).
Several ongoing projects resources are balanced in "what-if?" Analysis to define the sequence of realization with maximum speed. 
You have a chance to make one of the best investments in your professional career!
Six gears of successful multi-project management are fully presented, together with how-to suggestions.

Discover Project First Principles - Article by Randy Cox | PMfor today.com | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

[...] In 1945, Pablo Picasso prepared a sequence of 11 fascinating lithographs depicting a detailed, lifelike bull transforming into an elegant abstraction.  [...] Dr. Goldratt introduced with his Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) solution, which might be loosely characterized as follows: Strip the “baked-in” wiggle room out of individual task estimates and put a portion of that into the project buffer at the end of your network.  [...] Let’s start managing our projects from TOC first principles, dramatically improve throughput, then work our way into the cool buffer management and other insights Dr. Goldratt brought to the table with the full CCPM solution. So, here’s the challenge I have for you (and I’ll be doing this right alongside you): take your CCPM propeller hat off for a minute and just go back to what we read in The Goal. Pretend CCPM doesn’t exist yet. See your project with new eyes.  Look for the flow.  Look for the friction point patterns.  You know what to do from here.
