Breakfast conference - Critical Chain Project Management

Home>Conferences>breakfast conference CCPM

Boosting your project portfolio performance beyond your expectations


Increasingly used, Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) is a project management approach that allows you to finish nearly all your projects on time, to reduce their durations by approximately 40%, to provide excellent visibility and anticipation capability, and to create a much better working environment with much less stress and firefighting.

Critical Chain Project Management is the Theory of Constraints' project management "solution". In this conference, Philip Marris, who has more than 30 years of experience in the use of the Theory Of Constraints (TOC) in over 200 different companies, presents the essential components of the "Critical Chain Way": how to plan projects, how to execute them, how to implement CCPM and how to further improve performance with a focused continuous improvement process. Many real life examples are included drawn from Marris Consulting's extensive Critical Chain experience in a great variety of environments and a great variety of types of projects: new product development, MRO, Capex projects, 10 day projects and 10 year projects...

He also explains the why he recommends using TOC's 5 focusing steps to project portfolios, a process often resulting in increases in productivity of more than 100% (2 to 3 times more projects completed per year).

He adds his own points of view and recommendations: the possibility of combining Agile with CCPM, the relationship between CCPM and the PMI's (Project Management Institute) body of knowledge, the combination of CCPM with Lean Engineering...and how easy it is to get these extraordinary results.

The end of the conference is devoted to a questions and answers session.
