Conference webinar about Critical Chain Project Management

Philip Marris host a conference on Critical Chain Project Management


During a webinar hosted in Decembre 2023, Philip Marris explains what Critical Chain project management is. 


How is this management method different from traditionnal project management? How to accelerate your projects while building a more rigorous work environment?


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. Moreover, because of the high performance of each project individually, the project portfolio becomes easier to manage.


During this webinar, Philip talks about the different elements of this methodology, and provides a comprehensive understanding of its application. A highlight of the webinar was his explanation of two key concepts: 'Focused' and 'Pessimistic' task durations. These terms, used in the Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) methodology, were explained.


This video is an extract from the webinar where Philip Marris explains how these task durations are defined and the right approach to estimating them correctly.
