Critical Chain Project Management Advanced Training

You have already implemented the Critical Chain methodology and you would like to deepen your knowledge. This training is for you!


If you underwent our initial Critical Chain Project Management training or if you have, at least partially, implemented Critical Chain Project Management, this training aims at enhancing your expertise. The training will be hosted by Philip Marris, CCPM expert with a unique experience of successful Critical Chain implementations worldwide who started his Theory of Constraints in 1986 when he worked with Eliyahu Goldratt. 


  • The advanced project scheduling with Critical Chain

How to create good CCPM standard schedules. Modeling tips and recommendations in specific cases (gaps, critical suppliers, etc.). Integrate risk management into CCPM operations. How and why to choose the right Critical Chain.

  • Projects portfolio management with the Critical Chain methodology

How to identify the capacity constraint in a project environment. The sequencing of projects according to the capacity constraint or “virtual drum”. What principles and rules to apply to optimize the performance of the project portfolio (level of work in progress, prioritization of projects, etc.).

  • How should we communicate with our customers?

If a client is unfamiliar with the Critical Chain approach, how do you avoid misunderstanding and questioning of schedules by your clients?

  • How can we drive the continuous improvement actions?

How to use the analysis of the buffers consumption to identify the most relevant actions to launch. How to discriminate between tasks with and without added value. How to optimize the duration of tasks again.

  • The compatibility of Critical Chain with other methods

How to combine Critical Chain with Lean Engineering and DFSS (design for six sigma) to develop better products faster? Inject Agile into the Critical Chain approach and vice versa.

  • Which software should be chosen for a given environment?

How to choose among the CCPM software available on the market? What are the differences in functionality, interfacing and integration into IT systems
