The Critical Chain Project Management in 3 minutes


What is Critical Chain Project Management?


Explained in 3 minutes via John, a project manager in the watchmaking industry, managing the development and production projects for unique pieces.

Based on the observation that the lead time following planning did not meet the deadlines requested by the client, John wants to change his approach and discovers:

  • How to shorten task durations by eliminating individual margins,
  • How to protect the project against the uncertainty and variability by setting up a project buffer,
  • What he needs to focus on in order to ensure that the project runs smoothly, i.e. the critical tasks.
