Tasks have a reputation for being over schedule, over expense and under scope. What can be done to improve this credibility? This ebook begins by explaining the Theory of Constraints (TOC) methodology, which is the basis of the Critical Chain (CC) approach and is used to control schedules within project management.
An analysis of Traditional Project Management (TPM) is undertaken to identify where the concerns are with existing tasks and a comparison done between TPM and CC. The major body of this ebook is an in-depth explanation and review of Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) and covers the planning stage, how resources are managed, the role of buffers, the value of monitoring and focus and the execution of CCPM. Task Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) is referenced and the phases of CCPM and relevant chapters determined, offering a structure that can be used to implement CCPM.
