CRITICAL CHAIN PROJECT MANAGEMENT

 

Project times are reduced by 20% to 50% without compromising quality or adding cost, using the same resourses, hence significantly increasing throughput / profit. More amazingly, stress levels are significantly reduced in the the project team instead of the team burning out. Surprisingly, it costs relatively little to implement - it just requires a major mind-shift, which not suprisingly, is the most difficult part.
These unbelievable claims made by practitioners of Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) are being supported by a growing number of verifiable cases world wide.
CCPM, derived from "The Theory of Constraints" (now taught in most MBA courses) has achieved academic acceptance and is being offered in a number of reputable universities including the University of Pretoria.
CCPM can be applied in any industry. This site will focus on its application in the Construction Industry
