Projects, like operations, involve many resources which have to carry out many tasks in order to accomplish pre-determined end results. Projects (especially in multi-project environments) have characteristics which drastically differentiate them from production. Learn how projects can finish ahead of time, within the allotted budget and without compromising on the content.

Critical Chain - the longest chain of dependent events considering resource contention.

Project Buffer - aggregated protection against uncertainty to protect project completion due date.

Feeding Buffers - aggregated protection against uncertainty to protect the critical chain.

Staggering - the mechanism to significantly reduce bad multitasking in multi-project environments.

Buffer Management - a process for monitoring and prioritizing according to the critical chain performance.

You will learn how to carry out practical changes and what are the points you should take into account to have a successful implementation.
