CCPM - Critical Chain Project Management
In this excellent white paper Lawrence Leach explains "Critical Chain Project Management [486 kB]" and describes a way to cut project lead times while protecting overall probability to deliver the project on time.
Here are a collection of concepts and simulations which may help explain the stochastic nature of project management:
- a presentation with instructions for simulations around project management - the sixy game [800 kB]
- a resource spreadsheet [74 kB] to simulate task durations through rolling of dice
- a spreadsheet with which to simulate different strategies to protect a project plan [85 KB] (as described in the “sixy game” presentation above)
Credit goes to Dr. James R. Holt for making his lectures available to the public domain.
