CCPM for Project Managers

Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM)

Training Course Overview

This 3-day training courses is for existing Project Managers to upgrade from CPM (Critical Path Method, traditional methods)  to CCPM (Critical Chain Project Management) techniques.  This course can also be used by CCPM Project Team members who are already skilled at working under CCPM systems to be promoted to a CCPM Project Manager.

This course briefly overviews some of the course content in the CCPM Overview, CCPM Executive Overview, and then dives into the info that a CCPM Project Manager must master to achieve effective CCPM projects.

Without this training, there is a significant risk that a Project Manager will continue to apply ancient CPM techniques, but call it CCPM.  When results don't measure up, CCPM is often blamed.
