Eliminate conflicting priorities across your projects and organisation. Have single operational priorities and synchronise everywhere. Create a better workplace for everyone, with more and timely results
To manage a multi-project portfolio with many projects going on at the same time is challenging. Typically there are always more project ideas or customer projects than resources. Often clear strategic and operational priorities are lacking or cannot be maintained in the daily dynamics of a complex multi-project execution environment. Unclear and conflicting priorities create confusion about what to work on and results in much longer leadtimes for example due to multitasking. The consequences are extension of project lead-times, lack of reliability and/or less projects can be completed as required.
The value of Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM)
Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) addresses the challenge of running a complex multi-project portfolio successfully, by introducing two simple but highly effective controls:
- The first prevents overloads and determine realistic deadlines that can be complied with.
- The second controls the execution of the projects, using clear operational priorities synchronized across all roles and departments involved, so that deadlines are respected, and resource conflicts are eliminated.
Implementation of Critical Chain results in a stable and professional work environment, in which Task and Project managers are continuously supported with operational priorities for the synchronized execution of their projects and work.
