AvBuyer article about ABS Jets and it's results using Critical Chain | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

Last year ABS Jets implemented ‘The Critical Chain Project Management’ (CCPM) into its working environment, which it reports has shown significant results. The goal of CCPM project is to perform a scheduled inspection in a shorter time, to manage the workload involved, and to reduce the costs to the aircraft owners or operators – all while increasing profit margins for the charter providers. “By implementing the CCPM,” Albouy reflects, “we have been able to significantly shorten aircraft downtime during maintenance, which is appreciated by both charter operators and aircraft owners.

Change the way you plan and perform projects—and your whole program—and experience the power of the Ensemble Effect. The Critical Chain method of project management was built on the innovations of the TOC approach to manufacturing. It takes the ‘focus on the constraint’ principle used in a production environment and applies it to the white-collar working world.

"Focus and Finish" as an Operating Motto for a Project Factory - 1h webinar recording by Sanjeev Gupta | Realization

TOCPA invited Sanjeev Gupta, [...] to share his successes on why "Focus & Finish" is to projects what "Single Piece Flow" is to manufacturing. In this recorded webinar video, he demonstrated why without such would be detrimental and provided insights into the causes of so many failed attempts for resource optimization effort. He demonstrates why “Focus and Finish” is the essence of global optimization in projects and white collar work, how CCPM and Agile both promote “Focus and Finish”, and how to enhance the CCPM solution to drive more of “Focus and Finish”.

Critical Chain Project Management article in Industry Week by Mike Dalton

Critical Chain Project Management article in Industry Week by Mike Dalton | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it
Executing projects in a CCPM environment takes more than adding a new tool set. It’s a cultural change that requires organizational buy-in, new disciplines, and improved governance mechanisms. But the benefits far outweigh the investment. Companies that embrace CCPM report an average cycle-time reduction of 30-50%. As importantly, they finish 30-50% more projects and their projects finish on time with greater than 90% reliability.

CCPM 2018 Research Article by Maryam Mirzai and Victoria Mabin - Case study in the software industry

CCPM 2018 Research Article by Maryam Mirzai and Victoria Mabin - Case study in the software industry | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

7 page PDF.

Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) has been a controversial topic with extreme opinions on its merits. This is in turn partly due to dominance of theoretical debates in CCPM literature as opposed to empirical evidence and cases studies. This paper presents the findings of a case study research in software industry. Multiple semi-structured interviews and project documents were used. The paper provides insight into pre-requisites and practicalities of CCPM application such as accommodating iterative loops and reciprocal dependencies. The findings also provide some perspectives into current debates in CCPM literature concerning uncertainty, buffer sizing and dealing with large projects
