Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) In a Nutshell by Jonathan Sapir | Work-Relay

Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) In a Nutshell by Jonathan Sapir | Work-Relay | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it
[...] Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) is an outgrowth of the Theory of Constraints (TOC) developed by Eliyahu Goldratt to scheduling and managing manufacturing. TOC focuses on identifying and fixing bottlenecks in order to improve the throughput of the overall system. Likewise, Critical Chain focuses on bottlenecks. Using the Critical Chain Method, projects can be completed more quickly and with greater scheduling reliability. The difference between traditional and Critical Chain scheduling is in how uncertainty is managed. In traditional project scheduling, uncertainty is managed by padding task durations, starting work as early as possible, multi-tasking, and focusing on meeting commitment dates.  ...

Multitasking Game by Goldratt Research Labs - Free demo version

Multitasking Game by Goldratt Research Labs - Free demo version | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

You know you shouldn’t … but you do…Why? In the early 90’s, the ability to multitask was considered the #1 productivity hack. Today, after decades of research, we know its the #1 productivity killer. When we multitask, everything takes longer, we get less done, make more mistakes and are more stressed. So why is it that most of us still multitask today? Could it be that despite the research, we still underestimate the full cost of multitasking?


To test this hypothesis, our Goldratt Research Labs team developed the Multitasking Simulation Game.

Critical Chain Project Management — An executive summary by Philip Marris | Medium.com | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

The Theory Of Constraints is more and more pertinent in today's world of volatile uncertain demand in which it is not possible to distribute the work evenly throughout an organization. One resource will necessarily have a greater workload than the others; it will become the capacity constraint of the system. We must therefore identify the constraints and manage them accordingly. This video by Philip Marris, a Theory Of Constraints expert with over 30 years implementation experience in over 250 companies throughout the world, is a short extract of one of his one day training courses.

Project management using the buffers of time and resources

Authors : Azar Izmailov, Diana Korneva, Artem Kozhemiakin

One of the reasons to distinguish project management as a separate field of knowledge is the uncertainty. The way we manage the uncertainty in the project (and risk management in particular), has direct influence on the project duration and its success. According to multiple studies performed for the traditional project management methods, only 44% of the projects finish in time. 70% of the projects reduce the amount of planned work, 30% of the projects simply die unrealized. Even so nowadays, with new tools and techniques, that numbers tend to decrease, the overall  picture says that we, as a project manager, perform our work poorly. This article examines the use of a relatively new method of project management, Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM), comparing it with the traditional approach to project management.

Critical Chain Project Management to cope with uncertainty - 5 page description | Wiki.Doing-Projects.org

Critical Chain Project Management to cope with uncertainty - 5 page description | Wiki.Doing-Projects.org | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

Critical Chain Project Management(CCPM) is a method to plan, execute, manage, and control both single and multi projects, which emphasizes the effects of resource allocation and activity duration uncertainty. It has demonstrated over the past 10 years its ability to significantly reduce the duration of projects, to ensure that projects are completed on time, and to increase resource productivity. CCPM is an outgrowth of the Theory of Constraints (TOC) and was introduced in 1997 in Eliyahu M. Goldratt’s book, “Critical Chain” in response to many projects resulted in larger duration, increased cost, and less derivable than expected.

“Agile” CCPM: Critical Chain for Software Development - 30 page White Paper by Koichi Ujigawa and David Updegrove | TOCICO

“Agile” CCPM: Critical Chain for Software Development - 30 page White Paper by Koichi Ujigawa and David Updegrove | TOCICO | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it
[...] This paper suggests expanding the current TOC knowledge in Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) by examining a modified network construction process and buffer management method for use in software development. The problem we are seeking to address is the assumption held by many people in software development that CCPM, and by extension TOC, may not offer an acceptable (or good enough) solution for their project management challenges. Therefore, they embrace other methodologies, predominately Agile, as their preferred solution.

Getting Rid of the Bull to Discover Project First Principles | by Randy Cox

Getting Rid of the Bull to Discover Project First Principles | by Randy Cox | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

Although trained as a physicist and then pivoting into a world-class consultant, author, thought leader, and the founder of the Theory of Constraints (TOC), I like to think Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt would have made one heck of an amazing product designer! Why? When he went into a new subject area, he seemed to “Picasso” it. He would slowly dismantle the long-held assumptions, “best practices,” and sacred cows to get down to its essence. He then seemed to build simple theoretical models that showed the key dynamics at play, and then he would use the TOC thinking tools to carefully rebuild a unique understanding, which would spawn a novel set of insights, that would often shake the arena in question to its foundation. That certainly seems to be the case when Dr. Goldratt set his sights on engineering and other project-rich environments.
