Constraint Management & IT - 06 Agile vs CCPM

Agile and Critical Chain Project Management


What are the differences between Agile and Critical Chain?


“Agile was invented specifically for software development and it does not rely on a conventional project plan or conventional project management practices.


Planned projects, on the other hand, apply to more than software while agile copes with vague and changing requirements by rapid discovery.


Planned projects strive to fulfill a complete and stable set of requirements on a predictable schedule.


Agile usually has stable resources while planned projects roll resources with specific skills on and off as needed.


Critical chain is the constraint management application for project management.


Critical Chain was invented for manufacturing large complex industrial products like ocean-going oil drilling platforms.


However critical chain has been used in construction, aircraft maintenance, healthcare, and other industries including software.”
