Webinar presentation


Although still not widespread, Critical Chain Project Management (or CCPM) is a method of project management that allows you to finish almost all projects on time, to reduce them on average by almost 40% the duration, to bring an excellent visibility and capacity of anticipation, as well as to create a better working environment, with less stress and interventions to extinguish fires.


Critical Chain Project Management is the Theory of Constraints' project management "solution". In this webinar, Philip Marris, who has more than 30 years of experience in the use of the Theory Of Constraints (TOC) in over 200 different companies, will present the essential components of the "Critical Chain Way": how to plan projects, how to execute them, how to implement CCPM and how to further improve performance with a focused continuous improvement process. Many real life examples will be included drawn from Marris Consulting's extensive Critical Chain experience in a great variety of environments and a great variety of types of projects: new product development, MRO, Capex projects, 10 day projects and 10 year projects...


He will also explain the why he recommends using TOC's 5 focusing steps to project portfolios, a process often resulting in increases in productivity of more than 100% (2 to 3 times more projects completed per year).


He will of course add his own points of view and recommendations: the possibility of combining Agile with CCPM, the relationship between CCPM and the PMI's (Project Management Institute) body of knowledge, the combination of CCPM with Lean Engineering...and how easy it is to get these extraordinary results.


The end of the webinar will be devoted to a questions and answers session.
