Philip Marris's curator insight, August 25, 2013 3:42 PM

To quote from his website: "I spent quite some time living in Japan working within a large corporation that was both a batch manufacturer and a significant supplier to Toyota.  Their batch production mode had always caused them to decline “offers” from Toyota to improve their process and timeliness (but not their products which were in every sense of the word “World Class”).  However, together, we were able through Theory of Constraints to produce very significant improvements within a very short period of time.  Results that were significant enough to be reported in the national business press and also national television.

Let me say that I have deep respect for the fundamental techniques of Japanese kaizen, and of Toyota in particular.  Let me also say that I am not ignorant of Lean nor of its predecessors; World Class Manufacturing, Just-in-time, and so forth.  But there is something that is wrong with Lean (and Six Sigma) and I want to try to explain this. ...."

Project constraints discussed by Sanjeev Gupta and Philip Marris - 8 min. video | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

Sanjeev's brief summary of what (Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) is. His answer: "focus and finish". Since CCPM is part of the Theory of Constraints (ToC), where are the constraints in project management? 

Answer:
A) The Critical Chain of the project
B) One category of the resources used
C) The combination of A) and B)
D) The market demand

Normally the most logical way to identify a constraint in a project management environment is to identify the longest queues. In case B) when in a portfolio management situation it is quite often the case that 1 to 4 key people are the capacity constraint in an organization with hundreds of people. These key ...

Improving focus and predictability with critical chain project management - 8 page article by Joe Cooper | PMI.org

Improving focus and predictability with critical chain project management - 8 page article by Joe Cooper | PMI.org | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

Does it seem that projects in your organization require frequent firefighting where due dates are challenged and heroics are necessary to get things done? Do projects often go from green to red overnight? [...] Lack of focus and inability to manage uncertainty are two significant causes of project delays, diminished quality, excessive project durations, and poor team spirit. By addressing these root causes, critical chain project management (CCPM) techniques improve project speed, quality, on-time performance, and team morale. This paper demonstrates how reducing nonproductive multitasking enables team members to achieve high-speed execution and high-quality deliverables, and leads to a greater sense of accomplishment, and an increased capacity to think and to innovate. ...

... The main motto of the Critical Chain Multi-Project Management is to level up the resources that are upped and leveled correctly and the time for both beginning and the end is flexible. [...] The project management involves a chain of the task manager that consists of that continuity that is preference and stratagem clinging on to the element of the terminal that filters the project that is used to complete the project within a shorter period of the time-limit.
