Critical Chain Project


Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) addresses the challenge of running a complex multi-project portfolio successfully, by introducing two simple but highly effective controls:The first prevents overloads and determine realistic deadlines that can be complied with. The second controls the execution of the projects, using clear operational priorities synchronized across all roles and departments involved, so that deadlines are respected, and resource conflicts are eliminated.
