Marris Consulting - Critical Chain experts | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

We have over 25 years of experience of the Theory Of Constraints (TOC) developped by Eliyahu Goldratt.

 

We use TOC's Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) approach to boost project performance especially for New Product Development portfolios but also for many other types of projects (MRO, I.T., Construction, etc.). We simultaneously use many standard best practices notably those of the Project Management Institute. When appropriate, we also integrate Lean Engineering (a.k.a Toyota New Product Development System).

 

We help our clients reach and maintain ambitious levels of performance by combining actions on processes, organization, methodologies, tools … and people from the shop floor to the board room.

 

With our extensive experience of different industrial sectors and our expertise in change management we assist companies in all their departments: Manufacturing, Supply Chain, R&D and Industrialization, Marketing & Sales …

 

We are based in Paris France but our engagements can be anywhere.

Tame the Flow eBook by S. Tendon & W. Müller- Kanban, Scrum, Agile and the Theory Of Constraints

Tame the Flow eBook by S. Tendon & W. Müller- Kanban, Scrum, Agile and the Theory Of Constraints | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

This book is about how to manage knowledge-work, and in particular about how to bring a knowledge organization to a state of hyper-productivity.  […] we will look specifically, into Kanban, Scrum and the Theory of Constraints. The Theory of Constraints nurtures Unity of Purpose and Community of Trust in many ways. In particular, the Theory of Constraints squarely addresses the need to arrive at common metrics by which all and everybody are driven; and overcomes the structural impediments (rooted in the use of cost accounting and efficiency metrics for management purposes) which are the sources of divergence of purpose and hidden agendas. Kanban and Scrum are widely used in modern knowledge work businesses. The Theory of Constraint can extend them in powerful ways, bringing more predictability of behavior of the system as a whole, as well as of the individuals. Their combination becomes a powerful breeding ground for the development of Unity of Purpose and Community of Trust. […] The book will present practical ways by which such combination might be realized.

Mazda credits Critical Chain Project Management for company turnaround

Mazda credits Critical Chain Project Management for company turnaround | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

Mr. Mitsuo Hitomi, Executive Officer from the Mazda Motor Corporation Power Train Development Division presented […] how Critical Chain Project Management enabled Mazda to quickly develop their innovative SkyActiv capability. [He] described the crisis faced by Mazda […] surviving four straight years of significant financial losses. Mr. Hitomi described the last chance for Mazda to survive by developing technology that would achieve low fuel consumption from an internal combustion engine that would rival a hybrid engine, no compromise in the driving pleasure, and affordable for all customers. The product development cycle had to be cut in half for Mazda to survive. Starting with Critical Chain Project management education in 2007, the momentum grew within the company for holistic project management until the development project duration was cut by half.  […]

 

Rami Goldratt, CEO of Goldratt Consulting, said, "Mazda gives the world another great example of the power of TOC to generate results previously thought not possible - financially, operationally, and at least as importantly, in the growth and harmony of the people themselves." Mazda has won 73 awards for its SKYACTIV technology as of 20 January 2013 including Japan Car of the Year for the CX-5, Best SUV of the Year, Green Awards 2012. The CX-5 is the most sold car in Japan for 2012 and has sold three times more than last year's diesel cars sold total in Japan.

Yuji Kishira, Regional Director for Goldratt Consulting Japan, said, "I am so happy that Mazda is among the growing number of major Japanese organizations that are using TOC and with it, not just improving the performance the company, but also really improving our country and the lives of the people in Japan.  […]

Mr. Hitomi received warm applause as he presented the remarkable results in the improved quality of working life and the financial results for 2013 where Mazda has returned to the black after a continuous four year fiscal red ink. "[…] I know there is so much more to do. I will continue our journey of TOC with mindset of "Even sky is not the limit."

Agile + Critical Chain - 32 min video by Wolfram Müller

How to combine improved project management with improved agile methods. The agile movement (Scrum/Kanban) is a big success and a breakthrough in knowledge work. […] But the agile methods do not really fit into our project worlds. […] you have to deliver exactly to a due date with a defined scope and budget. […]So the question is how to bring these worlds together? In this presentation I show an approach based on Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) how to make agile Methods reliable (Reliable Scrum) and protect the agile part of course. The next step is to make them even faster (and more agile) with ideas out of the Lean/TOC World and in the third step - how this all fits together. […] The whole story and details can be found in Part IV of "Tame the Flow - Hyper-Productive Knowledge-Work Management" S. Tendon/W.Müller, 2013, leanpub.

The critical chain approach to project management isn’t just about scheduling, but … how can you describe it clearly? In this webinar, Rob shows how to encapsulate CCPM in four simple values. Along the way he challenges a few sacred beliefs.

Lean & Project Management | Gregg Stocker

I regularly run into people from the project world who feel that lean does not apply to the work they do.  […]   This is unfortunate because project management is a field that can benefit greatly from lean thinking.    […]  While the philosophy will be the same, the application will differ from traditional manufacturing because of differences in the pace of work and amount of repetition.  Attempting to copy the way lean is applied in a manufacturing operation will only serve to cement the idea that project management is different and cannot benefit from lean thinking.

Philip Marris's insight:

Sciforma software includes a specific CCPM module. This product was previously named PSNext.The CCPM module is (I believe) always part of the standard software suite so if you have Sciforma you already have a CCPM software solution.

In my next few series of posting we’ll take a look at how traditional project management (CPM) attempts to protect a project from inevitable uncertainty and then compare it to TOC’s version of project management referred to as Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM).

CCPM Cabinet maker example | Blog posts by Bruce Nelson & Bob Sproull

CCPM Cabinet maker example | Blog posts by Bruce Nelson & Bob Sproull | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

This posting is the first in a series of postings on a story written by Bruce  Nelson […] The Cabinet Maker: The consequences and chaos of uncontrolled efficiency.

 

The ultimate story of the Cabinet Maker could actually be any company, in any industry, in any location, and at any point in time.  […] The new projects seemed to be stalled in the production process.  It was not uncommon that new projects could take as long as two (2) months to complete, and this was not a good situation.  […] the primary contractor (the construction companies) used MS Project to schedule their project(s).  MS Project is a Critical Path Method (CPM) scheduling system, and that, by itself, presented a multitude of recurring issues.  […] It was a vicious cycle of reduced cash flow, poor on-time-delivery, and the inability to accept any new work, that finally pushed the cabinet maker management team to ask for some help. To be continued.........
