CCPM - Critical Chain Project Management

Workshop Overview
Every company has projects that are critical to their survival, whether it is a new marketing plan, product development, purchase and installation of new equipment, or software development. There are hundreds of workshops on project management. This Critical Chain Project management (CCPM) workshop is different because it's all about the biggest breakthrough in successful project management since Gantt & PERT pioneered "critical path" in the 1950's (CCPM, Critical Chain 1997 by Dr. Eli Goldratt).  CCPM gets your projects done 10% to 50% faster &/or cheaper.

This 1-day course is an overview to Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM). It is designed to give project team members an understanding of the CCPM methodology and how they can contribute to its successful implementation
