CCPM for Executives
(Critical Chain Project Management)

Workshop Overview
We all do projects.  Some of us are better at it than others.  Today, rapid implementation of projects is a competitive weapon that you (or your competitors) will eventually master.  The only question is who gets there first.

Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) was invented in 1997 by Dr. Goldratt, and allows projects to be implemented 10% to 50% faster than the traditional project management methods we have been taught for the past 50 years (CPM, PERT, Gantt, WBS, etc.).

This one-day training course is especially designed for Senior Executives to help them discuss and understand how many of the strategic initiatives they face (eg. marketing, sales, distribution, Human Resources, technology, profitability, Strategic Planning, financial accounting, 6 sigma projects, new product development, etc.) can be solved or simplified through CCPM methodologies.

Due to the strategic nature of the course content, this Executive Overview is not offered as a public session.  It is only available to organizations where their entire senior management team is ready to simplify their lives and the implementation of projects.  If your President, Vice-Presidents, General Managers, and similar Sr. personnel are ready as a group to listen, explain, and discuss CCPM, PQA is ready to help.
