Etienne Lecerf, Marris Consulting: 3 levels of project control, the Critical Chain pyramid

This upcoming conference presented by Etienne Lecerf discuss the three important levels of project control, and how each offers its benefits to improve the project workflow.

The Critical Chain method is often mentioned for its most recognized elements related to single-project management: identifying the longest task sequence, load levelling, buffer management, and using the fever chart.

However, two other levels of management practices should not be overlooked:

  • managing the entire project portfolio to reduce work-in-progress and multitasking structurally,
  • micro-level management involves handling daily tasks, identifying obstacles, and establishing a quick and effective feedback mechanism.
